95 47rh tq converter/driveplate bolt removal

ok so now i'm really confused. i can't figure out how to unbolt my driveplate from my torque converter. i dropped the only inspection plate i can find on the transmission, and it just shows you the bottom of the torque converter and flex plate, and there is NO ROOM in there to get to bolts to remove them. hell can't even see the bolts.

the hanes manual i have shows a much larger plate, on the engine side of the bell housing, and i felt around and looked, but no such thing exists on my tranny. oh it's a triple disk converter. so how on earth do i unhook it?

also how do i remove the driveshaft? maybe i'm dumb, but i removed the pinion straps, but can't figure out how you drop the rear of the drive shaft, or do i just need to do some prying?

To get to the torque converter bolts you have to turn the engine over to get to each bolt. Can use a barring tool if you have one, but a long screwdriver works good too. Just stick it up between the torque converter and your flex plate and turn it until you can get to a bolt. Remove said bolt. Then do it again until you have them all out.

For the drive shaft, just take out the bolts that attach it to the pinion yoke, then just slide the slip yoke out of the transfer case. If you have an extended cab or bigger you need to take the carrier bearing mount down too.

Do you mean that the ujoint isnt coming out of the yoke when you unbolt it?

Yes that's what I meant. My manual says drop the rear end then unbolt the bearing in the middle. How do I get the joint out of the yoke after I take off the straps?

There is an access plate on the passenger side of the bellhousing adapter. It is held on by 2 10mm bolts. Take that plate off so that you can access the torque convertor bolts.

You might have to turn the engine over (using a barring tool or the alternator nut) to be able to see the first bolt. There are six bolts total that hold the torque convertor to the flexplate.

When you re-install them, they get torqued to 35 ft-lbs. I put red loctite on them because they are known to come loose.

OK, I can only tell you about my 96 just R&Red my trans and TC. There is a small access hole w/a cover held on w/two small bolts, I couldn't find it at first ether, so keep looking. And it is not a large hole.

you cant get them out by pulling the starter its a waste of time, there is a plate on the passager side, i use a flat head screwdriver between the flexplate teeth and bell housing to turn the tc around, as for the rear drive shaft you dont have to unbolt it form the axle, you can drop the bearing carrier and slip the drive shaft out the back of the trans-some times its a bit fussy but its faster than taking the whole thing off

if you still cant find that plate i can run out and take a pic of mine as my tranny is out right now

I got the drive shaft out. Just was stuck and needed some coercing out. Yeah i'll have to look when I get home for the plate. I wouldn't mind a picture though just incase I can't find it

It's on the passanger side, about the same height as the starter. Two 10 mm bolts are holding it on. Roughly a 2 inch diameter cover plate.
