I cut open Mike Siska's PI triple this morning. I'm not posting alot of pictures of it most of the stuff is the same as what JL posted here. http://forums.tccoa.com/showthread.php?t=61668

I found a change of design slightly. The round tabs are now oval (ish). The converter was mostly in good shape having only a couple thousand miles on it if that from what Mike told me.

I also have a picture of a stock 082 stator so that you can compare it to the "butchered" 082 stator found inside this unit. Myself like many others do not approve of butchering stators. His stator also had a broken piece on it which was missing probably from handling. Not a really big issue but personally I would have saved that one for a stock replacement type job and used an unbroken one in a race converter. I tried several times to get a pic showing the hammering of the front cover and the pics where the tabs hammered doesn't show very well either. Some things are hard to photograph.
If you look at the pictures of the friction you will see a couple of the pieces of metal that came from the front cover where the plates hammered. Not much can be done about it except file them off and try to index them in the best fitting location. When I get the parts I will get a few pics of the reline.
Enjoy.

As much abuse as that TC saw over the last 3 years. The Clutch material at least from the photos does not look to bad. Very interesting autopsy though Alan.

Mike........;)

The stall combination on it was set for 2600 originally, I'm willing to bet it went a little farther than that it had a #3 pump which is the tightest of them and that 082 stator that PI did their thing with.
I'm sure the converter has definately been through some abuse I've seen that bird fly. :)

Interesting...I'm not too suprised at the clutch material-there's not alot of rpm differential in a 2600 rpm converter for the clutch to have to absorb vs a 4000+ converter,so it's got alot less lockup load on it. I'm pretty sure that the carbon stuff will last next to forever in that setup when you're done with it.
