8. Continental carefully checks the dimensions of every component of the converter. As you might guess, these measurements (internal and external) are critical in the creation and operation of the converter. Spinning parts within the unit are subject to tight clearances, and if something is off by just fractions of an inch, major problems can result. We were impressed by the precision and care that went into the creation of our Bronco's torque converter. The guys at Continental don't mess around.
