Best Answer

Torque is defined as a measure of how much a force acting on an object causes that object to rotate. The object rotates about an axis, which is called the pivot point. Let the force acting on it is 'F'. The distance from the pivot point to the point where the force acts is called the moment arm, and is denoted by 'r'.

Now, torque, Ï„ = r * F = rFsin Ñ²

Hence, torque is the cross product between the distance vector (the distance from the pivot point to the point where force is applied) and the force vector, 'a' being the angle between r and F. We are taking cross product because the variables involved are vectors. Note that the distance in this case is a vector.

P0743-Tourque converter circuit electrical

first you must remove the transmission from the van then you gentely remove the tourque conerter from the front of the transmission and the seal is located where the shaft the tourque was on enters the transmission remove the old one and reinsert the new one, oil or grease the tail shaft on the tourque so when you reinstall it you wont damage the new seal gentely reinsert the tourque converter turning it slightly make sure it slips back 2 notches if it's not overdrive, 3 notches if it is overdrive the rest is reverse of the removal process when your done check the fluid!
