Well I am working on getting my motors swapped. I blew something out of my 85 Gt Auto so I am swapping it with the motor that came out of my 85 GT 4 speed. I just got the motor off and I need to take the flywheel off but there is a dough nut looking thing. I see the bolts holding it on but I can't get a wrench on it. What can I do?

1985 Black Gt Auto
1985 Silver GT 4t65hd (SC3800)
1986 Gold 2m6 Auto
Hopefully I have room for one more!

The bolts that hold the torque convertor are accesable after you take off the starter and dust shields. You have to rotate the crank shaft to get to all the bolts.

You get to them one at a time by spinning the crank. Take the spark plugs out to make it easier to turn.

Here is the fun part. When you put it back together, place the torque converter on the transmission input shaft first. Then put the engine and trans together. Then as before, tighten one at a time by spinning the engine over. Much fun.

If you bolt the TC to the flexplate then try to mate the engine and trans, odds are it won't line up. The little splines get wedged on the input shaft for some reason. Don't ask how I found this out.
