Torque Converter Questions
Posted 17 April 2005 - 04:21 PM
Also how do I go about pulling the torque converter off so I can gain access to the rear main seal? Thanks a lot

just fill the tranny like normal and it will work out just keep it topped off.
what are you doing a rebuild?

WARNING/CAUTION/ALERT: The torque converter MUST be correctly mounted onto the transmission shafts when you reattach engine to transmission. "Correctly" means in a specific way; I do not happen to remember EXACTLY how to do it (it involves rotating and pushing and listening/feeling for clicks) you might want to check out this thread (which IIRC includes links to the procedure).

So are you saying there is more bolts that need to be removed or should the torque converter just pull off and seperate from the flexplate? Input on this would be much appreciated because I am kinda frustrated as I thought that there was only four bolts that held it on. Thanks

When I pulled the tranny, even with the TC unbolted from the flexplate, it DID NOT want to come off. After enough hammering and prying it finally came off.
To put it back on, I spun it around and around and lifted up on it, (and never heard any clicks). It eventually went 'home' all the way in. I tied it in place, put the tranny back up, cut the rope, and bolted it all together.
Just drove it today for the first time since '99
