Torque converter REMOVAL.

I've asked lots of questions about installing TCs, I have one about REMOVING one

The rotational combination for the torque converter is such to facilitate the lining up of slots in rotating parts inside the transmission.

With a TC already installed in the transmission, and of course, being physically separated from the engine, would it just pull straight out? or is there some hoops to jump thru in that regard too..

It should just pull straight out; never had one do otherwise.

That's what I thought...just making sure...the logic suggests the rotational combo is just to align pump parts initially...I've broken too many shaft tabs to NOT make sure this time

Pull it upwards, straight up that is. Screw some bolts into the mounting holes and pull. Don't mess up the tangs on the pump side.

Yeah...horizontally, no matter how steady you think you are, they break. that was lesson #2
The more and more I read and look at things, the less daunting this seems...I may even be so brave and take the rear housing off to see what I can see...

on your SD ,there should be a plastic plug in the bell housing which prevents the convertor from coming right out. it is also there to hold it in place when assembling the trans onto the engine.

It's in my SEL, the 4.5. I have a line on a transmission from a 450SL, except I have to convince him to sell the transmission separately.

My leads are down to a transmission in New England, most recent being Az (lol)
I live in Canada...unless I happen to stumble upon a cheap parts car....Oh well, this down time is good for me to catch up on other things.. like control arm bushings and such.
