    Has anyone had a problem with the torque convertor not coming out after the retainer has been removed?

    The back of the torque convertor is geared and needs to be aligned to pull free. I usually use a puller threaded into the coupler holes on the convertor, slight tension then rotate slightly till it moves out about a 1/4" then more pressure and it should come free.
