    Those look like they would of been helpful. Well I couldn't get my torch to stay running so I went back to Menards and got a Dremel with a 3 foot snake-like extension. I was able to cut the nuts and chisel them without damaging anything but the studs....oh well, I'm gonna replace torque converter anyway, just glad to b able to move on

    Should I be able to reach both of the top bell housing bolts without removing drivers side exhaust manifold?

    Yes, several extensions, a swivel or two and you can reach them going in from tail housing side. No reason to remove the manifolds unless you got headers going in, : D

    Got the passenger side upper bell housing bolt off no problem...drivers side must be a little tighter. I couldn't get it with a 2 foot breaker bar so I put 700 ftlb impact on it and it still didn't budge.

    Did break my universal joint in the first impact attempt, it's wasn't exactly impact rated lol

    Gotta get the ball and socket type, much stronger. Plus when using an impact with u joints, only a fraction of the torque gets to the bolt through all the pieces.

    I'd go back to the breaker bar and a pipe.

    yes, impacting with extensions is a waste of time.

    Wow I think you guys were right. I had like 6 wobble extensions on there and couldn't impact it off...I switched to an impact universal joint and a 1/2 inch 2 foot extension and it impacted right out

    Well I've got all of the bolts off except this wierd one a couple inches above the rusty one in picture on drivers side. It doesn't match any of the other bolts on the bell housing and I don't have a socket that fits it tightly. It's between a 16 and 17 mm and has a washer or 2 on it, may not be original.

    It's probably mushroomed over and boogered up. Try pounding a 15mm on there.
