Default Removing flexplate/TC from a seized engine????

I need to pull a seized 360 today. I was thinking about it, and I can't figure out how I am going to get the torque converter(TC) bolts out. I assume that the engine will come out with the TC connected if I leave them in, but then what do I do? I need some suggestions.

Thanks,
Tom

I dont see why you couldnt just pull it out, have the converter come out with theengine, and then once its out use a box end wrench to remove the bolts, probably even fit a socket on most of them, be careful putting the torque on that thing tho, rest it on a tire or something so it doesnt roll over and squish your liver!

If you can remove the front grill, you can remove the whole driveline (less driveshafts) in one piece. What kind of vehicle are you pulling it from?

Remove the whole driveline, then remove the t-case, then the tranny - careful not to damage the pump! Then get at the bolts with a box end. The siezed motor may actually work to your advantage by not turning when you try to loosen the bolts.

Oh - and have a cheater pipe handy [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Are you just replacing the motor, or are you using the other drive line stuff for another project?
Do you need the T/C and the Flex Plate (F/P), or can you live with out one or the other?

Depending on why the engine is siezed, you maybe able to remove the rod caps and then be able to rotate the crank, or. You can remove the engine with the converter attached to the crank, you'll need a lot of room to be able to move the engine forward far engought to disengage the trans input shaft, then start disembling the engine to the point you can rotate the crank.

Good Luck....09
