Mitsubishi KM Archives - Transmission Digest
Hot Tech From the Hotline

Have you ever encountered spin-out of the front pump bushing on a Mitsubishi KM unit as shown in Figure 1? Several years ago Paul Yaklin produced a bulletin explaining how the converter pilot bushing would get stuck on the pilot of the converter (see Figure 2). When the converter is removed, the pilot bushing stays with the converter unnoticed. Inevitably, a rebuilt converter then is installed without the adapter bushing in the crank bore. As a result, the centerline of the converter becomes seriously misaligned.
