I usually jam a large screwdriver between the tc and flex plate ( technically it is not a flywheel) until I get to the last bolt. Then I use a smaller screwdriver and place it in the teeth of the flex plate against the transmission housing to stop it from turning as I loosen the last.
Hope this helps!!

What is your question.? It should come out with the converter still bolted to the eng flywheel. If your pulling a front wheel drive vehicle motor you drop the trans out the bottom first, then pull the engine. You can also drop both together by dropping the support cradle. That is the best way and the way it was built and done in a dealership in some cases. Trans got go to have roon

SOURCE: how do you take torque coverter flywheel

Not really sure of your question but am going to guess you already know that the torque converter is in the bell housing of the transmission and you know the transmission needs to be removed. Again guess you are trying to locate the bolts that hold the converter onto the flywheel so am going to go with that. there is an access plug on the transmission (see picture below) If I'm not mistaken after you pull that plug out there may be an air deflector type thing that also comes out. The just rotate the engine until the bolt lines up with that hole. Remember only to rotate the engine clockwise using the center bolt on the harmonic balancer. Hope this is what you were looking for......

How do i remove flywheel away from torque


it is not a flywheel but a flexi plate
there will be 3 or 4 bolts facing back from the block going through the plate into nuts in the front of the torque converter
you will probably only get to one at a time and as you remove a bolt you will have to turn the flex plate until the next one comes into position

Remove a flywheel


The clutch come out with the engine since it is bolted to the fly wheel. If you had an automatic transmission then you would need to remove the torque converter bolts from the flywheel so that the torque converter would stay in the transmission. If you pulled the manual transmission the clutch would stay attached to the flywheel. It's the same when pulling the engine.

Torque converters are bolted up to the flywheel or flexplate. Probably 4 or 6 bolts from the flywheel engine side into the torque converter.

How do you change the flywheel?


Pull the transmission back (or remove) enough to access the flywheel/ torque converter. Remove the converter from the flywheel, then you will see the flywheel bolts that mount the flywheel to the crankshaft--(I think there are 6). It is advisable to replace these bolts with new ones when reinstalling the flywheel, and be sure to get the proper torque spec for the bolts from autozone or a reputable shop and torque them sequencially correct and to the proper spec.

Did you remove the transmission lines too? did you remove the linkage from the gear selector to the transmission? And last. Did you remove the plate near the bell housing? If you remove that plate you'll see the flywheel teeth that the starter engages to to spin the engine over.. And you'll see bolts holding the torque converter to the flywheel. You need to remove one bolt.... Turn the engine over by hand at the crankshaft with a ratchet until the next bolt is in a position to remove. Remove it and continue till all the bolts are off.... Then try to remove the transmission... You absolutely have to unbolt the torque converter or it won't pull out. The space to get those bolts out will be fairly tight.. A ratchet wrench would be the fastest. A regular ratchet might fit.. But if it doesn't a box end wrench will work.
