Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I am removing the engine from a 1995 ford escort 1.9L sohc. How many bolts hold the flywheel to the torque converter? I removed 4, all I can see, but the engine flywheel still seems "stuck" to the torque converter. Any thoughts>>

There are 4 bolts, you can see all of them, there's no mystery there. The torque converter may have a hub shaped thing in the center which fits into the rear of the crankshaft and it's stuck there. If you have all the bolts out, it will come apart. Use a little persuasion..
