580k sluggish torque converter relief

greg I cleaned the suction filter, was not very dirty which I guess is good. So I am down to the torque converter. I was reading and I see there is a torque converter relief valve, could that cause the sluggish issue? I was told these converters were truck converters and should not be that expensive. not sure I want to take on changing on just yet, maybe use it until it stops moving. if anyone (aj) can give me info on the converter relief that would help
AJ If the relif valve is dirty it may be causing your problem remove and clean, replace if necessary, Cheers

Deewight Greg: Still would be nice to know high idle-no load and your stall speeds. I don't think there can be anything wrong with the torque converter. You would have seen evidence in the screen when you cleaned it. Generally the only thing that goes wrong with the torque converter is a bad sprag clutch which will give you a very low stall speed. Have had to replace the torque converter pump however on several machines. When you start the machine initially, does it take a long period of time before you get drive?
Imposter again The AH is back
greg no i can drive it soon as i start it. what is the symptom of a bad converter pump. I think that supplies the shuttle pistons right? and the shuttle is not slipping so i think thats ok. I though a torque converter was just oil being thrown by fins onto anther set of fins. I would like to figure this out.
