    Threw the spoolinator in the lathe today. Figured since it’s now a paperweight id take a look at what went wrong. It appears that I had another sprag failure. The sprague is very very light weight, I’m amazed they last at all.

    I probably should put a disclaimer in this post. This is just for educational purposes. I’m not trying to badmouth sinister. I’m just trying to get an honest assessment of what happened to this torque converter twice.

    Either dirt killed it, or just torque.
