    when removing my torque converter, how do I get to all the bolts? can i just lightly bump my starter to get the flex plate to turn?

    there is a flywheel wrench that is available from parts stores. i wouldn't bump the starter when loosening the bolts. i have turned it by hand before, but it's a pain in the ass. get the wrench. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Just put a 5/8" socket on the crank pulley bolt and turn it untill you can get each bolt.
