Removing torque converter
Posted by: Don1963 ()

I am removing the torque converter in a 66 110 with a power glide. I have the motor and torque converter sitting on a four wheel cart in the barn. I already took the transmission and differential off the assembly. I saw in another post that there are three bolts that fasten the torque converter to the bell housing or engine block (I assume they screw into the bell housing). Is there a spot where the crank can be turned to expose these bolts?

Use a flat screwdriver or similar to rotate the torque converter. The attachemt bolts are seen thru a "window" on the bell housing that is covered with a sheetmetal plate. It will pry out. As you rotate the assembly (easier with the spark plugs out) you will see them come into view. There are 3 of them that attach the converter to the flex plate, which attaches to the crankshaft.

Bolts screw through the flex plate into the torque converter from the engine side.

A PG bellhousing has a removable tin plate that allows you to access these bolts but I can't remember exactly at what position it's located but should be fairly easy to spot.

Thank you! That will save me from a lot of head scratching and confusion. I will get back to it.

I do have a manual on dvd. I was being lazy, It was easier to ask you guys than it is to find it on the disc. By the way, it went very well, once I put some effort into it. Thanks again, every one!

Easier to just look in the book I think. Not a dvd but the good old shop manual.

best wishes, Steve

The "tin" between the engine and the firewall needs to be removed to expose the bellhousng, then you can see the little square inch or so plate that snaps out to expose the three bolts (one at a time as you rotate the crank).thumbs up
