GMC Suburban THM350 Transmission 1973, Traveler Torque Converter by B&M®. Includes: Torque Converter, New needle bearing and thrust washer. Stall Speed: 1900-2100. B&M’s Traveler converters are designed for use in heavy duty applications such as motor homes and tow vehicles. The slightly higher stall speed helps to get the heavy vehicle moving, without sacrificing normal highway operation. The minor 300 RPM increase on stall speed is also helpful in keeping transmission oil temperature lower, when compared to normal high stall converters. The Traveler is stronger than a stock converter as well, through the use of new pump drive tubes, needle bearings where equipped on the original model, and new thrust washers. These units are manufactured to B&M’s specifications for long, trouble-free operation.
Notes: Recommends Installing a Supplementary Transmission Oil Cooler to Control Extra Heat, as Well as a Transmission Temperature Gage to Monitor the Temperature of Oil.

From the Tork Master, to the Nitrous Holeshot for street applications to the Quick 60 Race converters for racing, B&M has the right converter for your vehicle. All B&M converters are precision engineered, spin balanced and pressure tested.
