BD-Power (1071240) Torque Converter 2001-2012
BD Power Allison
1000 Torque Converter - 2001-2012 Duramax 1071240
BD’s new Triple Torque Force, less is more. To start, our in house CNC machined cover is designed as one piece which prevents warping, improper balancing and leakage. With our one piece cover design, we were able to maintain the factory height thus eliminating crowding of the pump and the possibility of premature wear.
Not stopping there we have engineered the dampener for a better balancing by riveting it in place, eliminating welding which can cause warping and out-of-balance. Each dampener spring is hand picked to ensure softer engagement. Added notches to the clutch material to prevent fluid adhesion thus ensuring that even in fluid coupling the clutches will always have lube.
With engineered tighter tolerances and self-centering 36-external / 32-internal trapezoid-shaped clutch teeth design that enable more contact surface to ensure the clutch plates properly align resulting in less friction wear, longer converter life cycle and firmer drivability. The clutch plates are also precession ground flat for smooth operation and consistent wear. Not only will this converter last longer, it also has 3x the torque holding capacity.
As with BD's original Double Clutch X-Converter, the Triple Torque Force comes with BD's engineered cast aluminum X-Stator that the Fin lengths, angles and curvatures are designed to deliver a fluid coupling engine RPM transfer of up to 95% vs. 75% with stock stators. This efficiency reduces engine temperature, increases fuel economy and better matches the torque curve of the engine resulting in more torque and horsepower being delivered to the ground.
Further to all of our enhancements, we were able to reduce the over all weight of our converter by 12lbs compared to our competitors thus resulting in better fuel economy, less wear and tear, and, overall superior customer satisfaction.
