I am looking for information about a Torque Converter to slow down a 100 series landcruiser auto in 4WD Low range. Does anyone have information on something like this or more particularly has anyone done it?

Drew,
try this mob in Victoria:
Wholesale Automatic Transmissions

The article is about modifications to Nissan autos.
I also have a petrol 100, so let us know if you find out anything more.

cheers,
Snowball.

Mate, if you get a convertor installed with a lower stall speed than standard then you will place too much load on the engine at idle and cause the idle speed control to work overtime , not to mention having to hold it on the brake harder at a stop. Sure it can be fitted but the overall effect would be far worse than the gain in low4.Moo... everyone knows what a Jackaroo looks like :-)
