    Question question about pulling a seized engine

    my engie threw a rod, cracked the block and seized up.i have a 75 camaro with a 350 and th350 tranny. since te engine is locked ive heard that the fly wheel and torq converter has to be pulled out before you can separate it from the tranny or you will damage things. what would be the best rout to go? ive been thinking about dropping the oil pan and unbolting the rods from the crank, removing the timing chain and pulling it of the crank shaft. then frm there unbolting the fly wheel and torque converter

    I allways cut the crank in this siutation. You can try and remove that broken rod and see if you can turn the motor, as long as you can rotate it you can remove your Torque converter bolts.

    You might be able to unbolt the tranny and then slip the whole unit off the torque converter. Might have to raise the front end pretty high though.

    You can get the engine and trans out of the car in one piece. Just remove the hood and put some covers on the the nose. You'll need a couple strong or heavy guys to push the front down for clearance, but it will work. Then just pull the pan and start tearing it apart. You can save the trans at least this way.

    I'm missing something. Why cant you seperate the trans and leave the converter on the fly wheel?

    You absolutely can. That's the way it has always been done. Just make sure you pull the transmission straight back, and have a large drain pan and LOTS of rags to clean up the huge mess.
