    After more than 30 years of doing this, it’s disturbing to find one is not perfect! In last month’s TCRA feature, my fingers (or quite possibly my mind) slipped while typing instructions to the layout people here. As a result, photo 6183 was used in place of photo 6163. And so it was that a photo of Mike Souza at an industry picnic was captioned as being GM senior converter engineer and TCRA seminar speaker Victor Roses. This is the correct photo of Mr. Roses and I apologize for not seeing the error when proofing the article.

    Just as I was sitting down to write a column this month con-cerning the torque converter segment of our industry, I re-ceived a follow-up to an email received from builder Hugo Magdaleno a few months ago...
  • From The Publisher - ASA Warns Shops: Be Data Aware
    Friday, June 1, 2018 12:00 AM
    Experts say motorists (our customers) will be potentially sharing more and more data from their vehicles onto a cloud and then to who knows where? More and more what seems like attractive data being brought aboard the vehicle is only one side of an equation that includes returning data to the cloud and the various third party collectors that are there.
  • From The Publisher - The passing of Jimmy Fuller, Transmission Digest Theatre
    Tuesday, May 1, 2018 11:08 AM
    It is with quite a bit of sadness that we report the passing on April 21 of Jimmy Fuller at age 65. Jimmy opened Alabama Bands in Muscle Shoals, Ala., nearly 38 years ago after working in the band relining department at Delta Automotive in adjacent Sheffield, Ala. Fuller later added a solenoid remanufacturing business, Shoals Solenoid, and also had added a product line of relined torque converter pistons.

    I’d originally written a seasonal greeting into this space when, over Thanksgiving weekend the Transmission Digest family was devastated to learn of the passing of longtime sales associate Mike Anderson at the age of 67. Mike joined the team in March of 2000 and had been handling advertising and Marketplace sales for the magazine for those 17-plus years.
  • Torque-converter Rebuilding Functions
    Tuesday, July 11, 2017 2:49 PM
    Each July Transmission Digest tailors an issue to coverage of the torque-converter rebuilding functions. Torque converters are in some ways part of the transmission aftermarket, but in other ways face their own separate challenges and distribution networks. Most shops purchase converters as a subassembly to a transmission as opposed to building them in house. At the same time, many of the suppliers and rebuilders involved in the torque converter business are familiar stalwarts of the transmission aftermarket as well.
  • TCRA 2017 Seminar
    Thursday, March 9, 2017 11:04 AM
    If you rebuild torque converters or, more likely, you spend too much time trying to figure out if one is the root cause of difficulty with a transmission, you likely should add the annual Torque Converter Rebuilder Association (TCRA) seminar to your calendar. This year’s event is scheduled for April 21 and 22 in Los Angeles suburb Ventura, Calif.
