Engine Swap - Torque Converter bolts - HELP
Working on my 01 SCREW. It's a 4.6 auto. I am getting about 90% ready to pull the engine, but am having hell with the TC bolts. I got a slim wrench and socket to slide up between the oil pan and the back of the flywheel (it's easier because all the 4x4 drivetrain crap is in the way of the access hole on the side of the bell housing)
It has a good tight fit, but it rounds the bolts off. I tried one with a box end cheapo and it started to round. So I went and bought a nice $40 flex head ratchet and fitting socket, it fits perfect on the bolt - and it took some muscle, but rounded a second one!!!
I did PB blaster on both about 10 minutes before trying...
So - there are 4 total right?
What should I do for the other two to not round them?
What can I do about the already rounded ones?
Much appreciate the help - I really need to get this running, the city code compliance is on my *** now!
