Removing torque converter

Hi guys, just a stupid question; I can't see how to pull the torque converter off the engine. City library is no help. They have a book on '60s Chevys with PG but not Corvair. It talks about bolts holding it on, but I don't see any, so pried a little. Maybe just pry some more or am I missing something?

If you remove the sheet metal shroud at the front of the engine to expose the top of the bell-housing, you will find a sheet metal cover on the top-right of the bell housing. Remove the sheet metal cover. (it's about 2" x 2"). Rotate the crankshaft until you see a torque converter bolt. Remove the bolt and rotate the crank to the next bolt. There are a total of three bolts. Once out the converter should come right off. Sometimes, the converter hub is rusted into the end of the crank but it should come loose with a little wiggling.

Marty: You need to build your own library starting with shop manuals and the books by Bob Helt.
