Transmission problem
1993 Ford Ranger 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 155K miles

I have a 1993 ranger and it is leaking out of the bell housing tranny fluid. I removed the tranny but cannot get the torque converter off the shaft. Is there a trick for this truck?

CLUTCH DISC & PRESSURE PLATE
Removal
Disconnect negative battery cable. Disconnect clutch master cylinder push rod. Raise vehicle and remove starter. Disconnect clutch slave cylinder hydraulic line by pressing White retainer bushing with Disconnect Tool (T88T-70522-A) while pulling on line. See Fig. 8.
Remove transmission. See TRANSMISSION under REMOVAL & INSTALLATION. Place reference mark on pressure plate and flywheel for reassembly reference. Loosen pressure plate-to-flywheel bolts evenly until springs are expanded. Remove pressure plate and clutch disc.
Installation
Clean pressure plate and flywheel surface with alcohol-based solvent. Place clutch disc on flywheel. Align disc center with pilot bearing using old input shaft or clutch pilot shaft.
Place pressure plate on flywheel and align reference mark. Tighten bolts evenly in a crisscross sequence. Remove clutch pilot shaft. To complete installation, reverse removal procedure.
CLUTCH RELEASE BEARING
Removal (Internally Mounted Slave Cylinder)
With transmission removed, twist release bearing and carrier assembly until resistance is felt. Turning the assembly further will allow the preload spring to push the bearing assembly from the slave cylinder. See Fig. 9.
MD11Installation (Internally Mounted Slave Cylinder)
Prior to installation, lubricate bearing bore and bearing carrier with multipurpose grease. Install release bearing assembly to clutch slave cylinder by pushing into place.
