If you are asking about the tin half round guard on the bottom of the flywheel or torque converter there should just be two sheet metal screws, one on each side and it will drop down.

SOURCE: torque specs on Chevy Silverado 2500 rear diff yoke.

There isn't a torque spec since those bearing are pre-loaded. You place the unit on a good known vic and get a breaker bar and you might even have to put an extention on that and you begin to tighten unitil you fell the bearing start to load...a little extra short turn wouldn't hurt at that point.

SOURCE: Where is the Torque Converter clutch solenoid

Actually, the Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid is located within the transmission housing that is easily accessible through the transmission oil pan. The TCC solenoid may vary in location dependent upon manufacture but generally it is located as aforementioned. It can cause your vehicle to stall if stuck open or close because it controls loads to the engine via your torque converter which is located between the vehicle's engine and transmission. Also, make certain that you attempt to change the transmission fluid and filter before changing the TCC solenoid because that may be your underlying issue. If not, simply reuse your fresh oil and change the TCC soleniod.

1990 7.3 idi auto non turbo fly wheel removal a replacement

An automatic doesn't have a flywheel, it has a flex plate instead. The torque converter makes it act a lot like a flywheel, though.

But... you're probably talking about the flex plate or the ring gear around its edge. This is going to require removing the engine from the vehicle - there's no other possible way to get the flex plate out.

Once the engine is sitting on the shop floor, it's a simple job to replace the flex plate - first you unbolt the torque converter and set it aside, then you unbolt the flex plate from the crankshaft. Bolt the new flex plate onto the crankshaft, bolt the torque converter to the new flex plate, and put the engine back into the vehicle.

Its an 02 how do i check the torque convertor or flex plate bolts to see if that is were my noise is coming from

The inspection cover is usually plastic, it is bolted to the under-side of the bell-housing and it is held in place usually by 4 small bolts, and once you remove them the inspection cover should come out. (you might also have to remove the starter on some applications)

After you have removed the inspection cover most of the flex-plate and the torque converter will be exposed. Turn the engine over and use a good light to inspect for damage to the flex-plate, and also check to see if the torque converter to flex-plate bolts are tight when they revolve into a position where you can attach a good ratchet.

1996 chevy k1500 steped into the throtle the trany down shifted then i heard aloud pop and then no gears at all

will the enging start? Check the flywheel to be sure it isnt broken. Pull the inspection cover under the truck and see if the torque converter is still bolted to the flywheel, there are only three bolts and they will break if they get loose. If both of these check out ok then the trouble is probably internal, and will require removal of the transmission to repair.
