Anyone got an thoughts for a source for a tourque converter for a 300Tdi?

I've tried all sorts of places and no one seems to have one! Every gearbox place I've tried doesnt have one, Ashcrofts are apparently out of stock, all the breakers I've treid dont have one etc etc etc........

I've even tried equicar - no joy there......

Where else to try?

Any ideas?

Ta!

The stealers won't have one anyway - most Tdi auto suff can't be had for love or money!

What's happened to the existing one? Is it worth sweet talking Ashcrofts into rebuilding it for you? That's probably the cheapest option by far even if you can find one.

Other option, although expensive, is to get an M&D Tdi to V8 autobox conversion and then get a V8 bellhousing and TC. However that won't be cheap!

Quite simply the existing one leaks! I cant see any obvious reason as to why it leaks, but it does! I took it out, sat it on the bench and filled it to the brim with ATF. By morning I had a torque converter sitting in a huge pool of oil!

I've had a note from Ashcrofts - they expect to have some in stock again next week so if i cant find anything before then thats the way I'll go!

Cheers
