    I have never used a torque converter on my metal detector, how does the torque effect your swing, i use a natural swing myself...

    Just emptying any piece of equipment will not clean out the interior 100% resulting in pollution. If you’re concerned about the water quality of our lakes and oceans, I am wondering why you would suggest that Magnet Angler use a torque converter with residual transmission fluid still in it for a boat anchor when a boat anchor can be used as a boat anchor?

    uh I think you mean catalytic converters. Torque converters go for scrap & some smaller junk yards won't mess with them because of the residual trans fluid.
    I know it's here, just need a bigger coil!

    boogeyman is 100% correct. What you described Tommy is a catalytic converter.
    Torque converter connects the engine to automatic transmission while catalytic converter is part of the vehicles exhaust system.
