  715,
        According to the post, you're right, the shaft has a machined area at the end. Now when you read the TSM and Reading on Autozone"s website, they ask if it is a low stall or a high stall. The TSM says there was a label put on at the factory to identify, if the label is gone you're sol as to which one was in the vehicle. So which do you get a low stall or high stall. My thought is to go with the low stall.

 715,
        TSM says decal is circular and has  lockup LS, or lockup HS on it.

 Doug,
         Thats good to know, wonder if the stall had anything to do with the axle ratios. My friend, who is rebuilding my trans, suggested the low stall as it creates less heat. It would make sense that a lower numerically gear would need the engine rpm
a little higher, for the engine to start making torque when it started pulling.

Could be.  The shop that replaced it said it was not a really high, high stall converter.  I forget what he said the RPM was.

  No, I would not think it was HIGH stall as in a racing converter, may have been used for trailering, or just the axle ratio.

715,
        Looks like the the end of the shaft is machined smooth on the lockup trans and splines all the way to the end on non lockup.

Can we buy torque converters for our 998's? I've seen TCI sell converters but only for 1972-1980, Will these work?
Hope for the best,

 My local Advance Auto store Told me the converters weren't available, Autozone shows them on their site. A local repair shop has them available, quoted me 100.00.
 
 wakko, the older ones won't work, they are non lockup.

  If you read the posts, there are yes's and no's on the '85 and up torque converter, should identify trans for sure before ordering torque converter, I don't know if the pre '80 non lockup would work in yours, assuming it is a non lockup.

   Chrysler torque converters have the starter ring gear on them and the AMC torqueflite uses a flex plate/flywheel.

The Eagle here gives the feeling our 3-speed automatic is shifting into a 4th gear around 35 mph.  That feeling of our 3-speed automatic shifting into a 4th gear around 35 mph is the lockup torque converter in the 998 Transmission.  I really like this lockup torque converter.
