It is a 1992 dodge shadow and I am getting ready to pull the A413 tranny out do to the fact the clutches are fried. Got to the point where I need to get the torque converter bolts out and was wondering what is the best way to do this and keep the flexplate secured in one spot long enough to break the bolt loose without it moving around on me. Thought about putting a breaker bar on the crank pulley nut but when I looked I noticed that crank pulley is secured with 4 or 5 small bolts and not a nut. What is the best way to do this?

theres one bigger bolt in the middle of the crank pulley and 5 smaller bolts.

I just use an 18mm wrench on the torque converter bolts and hit it with my hand to break loose.. really no biggie to do this. you could wedge a flat blade screwdriver between the ring gear and the block that works good to.

Word of caution; Once you remove the torque converter bolts and the Flex plate to crank bolts; Keep the SEPERATE. They have the same threads and are about the same length. However, IF you look close at the head, you will notice that the Flex Plate to Crank Bolts have a THICKER head than the Torque Converter to Flex Plate Bolts.
IF you Re-install them with, even ONE bolt swapped, The thicker head bolt that gets installed in the flex plate to torque converter WILL hit the Tin Inspection Shield. When you hit the starter to fire it up the first time, You will think the whole engine is comming apart. It is so LOUD, that it will scare you enough, that you will warn other people about it.
Very easy to mix them up, if you don't know to watch for it.
