How do you remove the torque converter and fly wheel. This is a 4 Cylinder motor. If using this motor to run a AC generator and If I were to leave the torque converter in place for adapting reasons leaving no oil in it. Would this turn in to problem? Also this is a 4 cylinder motor is it at 130 horse power or was that for a 6 cylinder?

Do you

I would use just the flywheel. Forget th torque converter.
130 is high. About 110 is more realisitic.

Torque converter has 4 nuts that must be removed from the flywheel side. The trans has to be separated from the motor and dropped. At this point, the fywheel will be exposed and is just unbolted from the crankshaft.
