Pulling an FE 390 Engine w/C6
I am looking for ideas.
My engine is frozen and have not been able to turn the crank to get to the torque converter bolts. I have pulled the intake exhaust manifolds and heads; and have been soaking cylinders with ATF/acetone (and a variety of other solutions) over the past several weeks...to no avail.
I plan on rebuilding (if not replacing) the engine and the tranny. Can I just pull the engine with the torque converter attached to the flexplate? I do have a hoist with a leveler. If I can go this route, what would you suggest as mounting points for the hoist now that the heads and manifolds are off? Or should I put the heads back on?
Any other ideas on freeing up the engine?
