Torque convertor

92 Astro, 4.3, 4 speed overdrive How does the torque convertor get fluid? Is it only when you fill it when you have it out, or is it getting fluid transfer when the vehicle
is running. Am replacing a convertor and want to be sure I have it full enough. Thanks

Gary,
Your replacing a torque converter and do not know it gets it's fluid from the trans pump?
But more important, how did the original fail, if it did?
And when they do little pieces of fractured metal gets recirculated throughout the trans, by this pump, necessitating a complete rebuild.
