What am I missing, because the first picture and the update picture it looks like the same installation? I'm about to install a couple of 40 series so I'm curious.

I thought I had installed in incorrectly but I didnt. Now that the unit is "broke in" it slips at idle and it functions like it should. I believe this installation orientation only applies to this specific torque converter from BMI, but I could be wrong....

With the 6:1 gear ratio and 18" tires its calculated at 30ish mph. I have gotten to about 26mph GPS holding my phone in one hand but I dont have a flat enough stretch to really wind it out. I need to get it on some pavement.

Its just about right though with the weight of the cart. Some breathing mods and it will be a handful
