I was told by a local mechanic the it may be the converter is this possible any ideas ? THANKS

Sounds like the timing chain set is a post 72 with the cam timing retarded. Has it been rebuilt lately or a new timing set installed?

If it has look at it and see if the key way in the bottom gear is cut directly below the dot and tooth. key way aligned with the cam pin.
