possably a baring inside your gear box, if you know how 2 change a gearbox, good stuff, but first take it to a garage to see if they can pick up on it, before you do any work

stage 1 tighten to 30 ft pounds
stage 2 tighten 90 degrees
stage 3 loosen one full turn
stage 4 tighten to 30 ft pounds
stage 5 tighten 90 degrees
stage 6 tighten 90 degrees
this is per mitchell on demand courtesy of ford specs on the lft and right head.
for some reason there are no torque specs on mitchell for connecting rods and mains.

Yes you have to remove the plate and the four nuts that hold the TC in the vehicle. You can damage the pump and the TC hub leaving on the flywheel. Also when the time comes to put the replacement in you have to align the TC into the pump of the trans, you can't do that if it is hooked up to the flywheel.
Remove the shield and use a remote start to turn the flywheel around to each nut. You can also use a pry bar pushing on the teeth of the flywheel to turn it. Then push the TC back into the trans to lower it.
Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "thanks very much. I thought that the "90 degrees" on the gasket instruction sheet was a misprint. Your answer was quick and informative. G.M."

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.

Testimonial: "Thank you for responding. I ended that conversation because I was already in the middle of another. I did make sure the torque converter was all the way in. I could have come out while i was installing the tranny."
