Hi. It sounds like you forgot to remove the torque converter bolts.
Yes, I think you are correct. I am using a Haines manual along with asking questions. I missed the Torque Converter bolts. In the manula it states there are 4, and that I will need to rotate the drive shaft to bring them into position to remove. I don't remember seeing anything that looked like the illustration in the book.
Do you have a diagram that shows the torque converter and its relationship to the transmission? That would be very helpful for me.
Ok. Here are two pictures of the access plug and of the nuts. There are 6 nuts on the v10. Use a socket and wratchet and spin the engine over from the crankshaft bolt to line up each nut in the access hole.
I will also leave you the complete shop manual instructions for transmission removal.
