RE: 700R4 to OM617 adapter, torque converter ?
You forgot the link...
These are the folks that I've been in touch with to adapt a GM V8 pattern to an OM606.
I can't speak to the older Merc torque converters, but I know on my 722.608 the lockup varies between 5 and 95% depending on conditions - so it never fully locks up like most GM, Chrysler and Ford torque converter clutches. Unfortunately, the way the world is going - the domestics are starting to go the variable lockup route, in lieu of a binary locked/unlocked scheme, since it allows for a smooth drive with less NVH...at the sacrifice of some efficiency.
'99 W210.025 - Total loss - parting out!
'95 W124.131/722.435, 211k - daily driver/Superturbo project - OM606.962 with "M" pump...under construction! (build thread here)
'94 Dodge/Cummins - NV5600, P7100, 5-hole x .015" injectors, ~400hp - farm/plow truck
