Im from shawnee wish i was closer to you so i could get another set of hands helping out.. but i took the 13mm bolts off the mount to engine part because i couldnt get a 1/2'' drive rachet or my impact in there.. but now i ran into another snag i have all the bolts out of the bell housing and the motor mounts unbolted and started to lift it out and the trans was lifting also. i found in my haynes it says to remove my torque converter access plate and converter to drive plate nuts so im in the process of that now

how the hell do you get the access plate off/out of the way??? Im prying on it and its just popping back into place

access plate, you need a 21mm and a 6inch extension then get the mount nuts off from underneath/behind the front spring
