Stuck toque converter bolts
« on: April 05, 2018, 09:43:03 pm »
Not really Jeep related but I'm stuck. I'm pulling the trans out of my Jimmy. It's allmost free but I can't get all the torque converter bolts out. I have tried everything I can think of and am out of ideas. It won't budge with air tools. Thank you

Do you have a torch set?  You can barrow mine.

Thank you Ken ,but I do have a set I couldn't get the torch head close enough.  The only opening you get is the starter hole. So I went to our shop this morning and grabbed a few different torch heads and a few brazing/rose bud tips.
