I dropped the truck off tonight and asked what part number convertor they were installing in my truck, He told me R8051146AB and said the "R" meant re-manufactured.
Does this seem correct? has Dodge issued a new part number and are the parts re-manufactured?
Not sure on the numbers or the re-manufacture. When I had mine replaced in Feb. of this year the service advisor told me it was a new converter that they were going to put in. I checked my service paperwork from when I had mine replaced and it had the following information:
Installed RL051146AB : Converter: Torque Qty:1
Core Chg UL051146AB: REM: Converter Kit: Core Char Qty: 1
I hope this infomation helps. You have me wondering if I also got a re-manufactured converter.
