Read another thread and thought "...my ATS TC works just fine..."

...Then I went for a drive to my nearest Tim Hortons (coffee) and when I got out of my truck, at the store, I shut it off and it made this nasty hard chirping/squeeling sound from the transmission area. So I got my coffee and drove back home, noteing some hesitant shifts along the way. When I arrived home, I had my buddy start it repeatedly while I listened with a stethascope, sound is out of the bell housing, long time home of my ATS 5 star TC...

...Shouldn't have read that other ATS thread...

If the TC is fubar, I'll just replace the stupid thing...

Yes, I read that horror story, sorry to hear of your misfortune.

My truck will be getting a thorough diagnosis of this problem tomorrow, and if need be, removing the trans and TC tommorrow afternoon. Worst case scenario is I get a FoMoCo for meow.

...You guys think a Suncoast 1085 would be a nice fit?...

I love my PI Stallion, but there's also a bunch of nice TC's out there. I just kinda wish I'd have gotten a lower stall.

Just got home from the shop... and the winner is DAVE. You pucking nailed it, replaced with a FoMoCo flexplate, and drove it home. I almost ordered a stock converter today too, but the crack was pretty obviously the problem, once I looked at it, that is.

I'm not putting the tranny jack away just yet...
