Converter is hanging on to the back of the engine. The mechanic says he's used prybars but was afraid to pry any harder for fear of damaging the flywheel.

Sorry, I should have mentioned that I have been talking to the vendor. He has this specific water jacket (the one I was shipped) labeled for '29-32. He seems to be more concerned that the outer mounting holes are correct, and less worried about the water distribution holes.

And that's where my question lies....assuming the jacket mounts properly up to the '39 block, the water distribution holes are different than what I pulled off and what another member showed earlier in the thread. I have no idea if this is a problem. The vendor doesn't think it matters much. I'm totally clueless....I've never even heard of a water jacket before working on this engine.

So just the converter is on flywheel/crankshaft?

If so. Well must be stick in crankshaft. If so . need to get a pry bar between flywheel and converter.

Use some type of lube . just be careful not to bend flywheel.

Torque Converter Removal

The engine was removed from my '55 Patrician. This vehicle came with a rebuilt engine and trans but the direct drive clutch has not been working from day one. With a pressure gauge I confirmed the clutch hydraulic pressure was kicking on at governed speed but no actuation.

Anyway, while removing the engine it was discovered the converter to flywheel nuts were all loose. However, the real problem is the converter will not separate from the flywheel. It's still attached to the engine and prying on it won't dislodge it from the flywheel. Any ideas?

Hey, Street (cool nickname for Streetrodder49),

As a barn find, did you do all the precautionary and preparatory things before driving?

Here's an article on the causes of blue and other smoke. Excess oil is one cause. What's your level.

https://www.cjponyparts.com/resources/exhaust-smoke-color

QUESTION Is the tranny and overdrive full? Low gear oil causes grinding.
Also not following the H when shifting, like cutting across diagonally from 1st to 2nd, can lock up the linkage.

With OD sitting a long time, you can get grinding at startup. Pull out the overdrive knob, be sure you can shift into Reverse before you start it, then put it in neutral and start it.

Someone here may have better ideas and ask better questions like "Shifting grinds between which gears?" But you're off.
