To access the torque converter bolts, the starter must be removed.
The top bolt of the starter has it's bolt head on the transmission side.
The bottom mount of the starter is a stud extending from the transmission secured by a nut o the engine side.
The starter solenoid wire (yellow) is retained by an 8mm nut and washer.
Be sure to detach the battery positive cable before detaching the starter from the (red) cable.
Now turn the crankshaft until a thin wall socket can fit on the converter bolt in the half moon groove on the bell housing. Turn the crank another 120 degrees to access the next .
