Question about 1981 Ford F 100
I can't get the transmission to drop . It is separated from the engine block about six inches, and still no such luck. Do I have to remove the 4 bolts from the Flex Plate to the Torque Converter in order to allow the Torque Converter to stay in the Trans. housing ,or simply just drop out of the way? It seems that the Torque Converter is in the way of allowing the Transmission to drop. Any help or suggestions pleeeease!!!
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.
