U have to find #1 cylinder compression stroke, piston at top of cylinder both valves closed. Piston position can be found by removing #1 spark plug and inserting a long screwdriver into hole and rotate engine slowly by hand until screwdriver is pushed out the most. There are two strokes that piston is extended these are exhaust stroke with exhaust valve open and compression stroke both valves closed. Valve position in relation to piston position can be found by removing valve cover on #1 cylinder side. once position is attained point rotor towards #1 cylinder. The best way to find #1 cylinder is to call autozone or comparable and they can tell u based on your engine. hope this helps please rate me

All trans to engine bolts are removed. engine mounts are free, engine still won't come out. I don't know what else could possibly be keeping it from seperating. Is it absolutely necessary to remove...


YES YOU MUST SEPERATE TO GET TO FLYWHEEL
THER IS TWO DOWEL PIN ONE PER SIDE TOWADS THE TOP OF THE TRANSMISION
PART OF ENGINE BLOCK THEY OFTEN BIT AND HOLD ON GOOD IF YOU ARE SURE THAT
ALL THE BOLTS OF THE TRANSMISION ARE UNDONE YOU SHOULD PUT THE ENGINE MOUNT BOLT BACK IN PUT JACK UNDER FRONT OF ENGINE HARMONIQUE PULLEY TO
STABILIZED MOTOR THEN WITH SECOND JACK AT REAR OF TRANSMISION JACK UP TO
START THE RELEASE THEN LOWER BACK DOWN TO RELASE TOP OF TRANSMISION
THEN WITH SUTIBLE PRY BAR BETWEEN ENGINE AND TRANS PRY APART UNTIL FREE
FIRST I WOULD UNBOLT TORQUE AND PUSH BACK IN TRANSMISION AND PUT A RETAINER TO PREVENT TORQUE FROM FALLING OUT OTHERWISE YOU WILL NEED TO CHANGE THE TORQUE PUMP INPUT SEAL IT WILL LEAK IF SEPERATED

I am puttin a transmittion in my chevy silveraldo 1500. 1995 model. i cant get the bolts to line up. so i leave my fly wheel bolts off or do i tighten them first?


Tighten the flywheel bolts first. Make sure the splined input shaft on the transmission is an exact match to the splines on the torque converter. If the transmission you are installing is from a different model year, they may not match up. If the transmission won't slide up all the way flush with the bellhousing, this could be the problem. If you are having trouble getting the transmission to slide all the way in, then you will need to pull it back and count the number of splines on the transmission shaft and also on the center hole of the torque converter. They must be the same. If they are not, then you will have to get a torque converter that is compatible with the transmission.

Does a torque converter for a 1989 ford bronco trwo have antyhing to do with a fly wheel


The torque converter bolts to the flex plate at the rear of the engine. It supplies the link between the engine to the transmission.

It's known as a "Flex Plate" and not a "Fly Wheel". The flywheel is use on a standard transmission.

The torque converter is not all the way in the transmission. Pull the transmission back out(unfortunately) and you will need to shake and wiggle while lightly pushing the torque converter into the transmission. Once it goes over the splines for the pump, you will know and the space between it and the transmission housing will be minimal.
