torque conv bolts


Recommended Posts

what type of wrench/tool do you use to loosen the conv bolts? the picture is a little misleading. the bolt is down just enough that you cannot reach it with a regular socket or universal joint. do you need to use a 18mm offset box wrench or ? i assume you reach the bolts thru the starter opening?

Remove the torque converter bolts from underneath the car - there is an inspection cover that needs to be removed. Rotate the converter to gain access to each bolt.

i am removing the motor and cannot find the inspection cover? :blink: I am amazed at how tight stuff is packed into/under the engine compartment. i have done both RWD and FWD trans swaps before but this northstar motor is really a pain. is this how the GM engineers reduced NVH? by having countless brackets and braces?
