Torque Converter HELL

Prepared to drop the trans on my 03 6.0 2WD F350 DRW, got to the point where I'm loosening the torque converter nuts. Trying to at least, I can't seem to get a good combo on these nuts. They seem to thin to get a good grasp on without rounding the bolt. Right now my setup is a extension on a impact socket (14mm or 15mm/ 9/16 irrc) and a breaker bar.

Anyone got any tips or the actual nut size I can't seem to get a real good fit and I don't want to round off all the bolts. Also I read somewhere that I can drop the tranny with the TC still connected but it would just make a mess, seeing as I'm working in a barn I'm ok with a mess if it'd be easier.

And my tranny didn't have a cover over the inspection hole is that something that is in dire need of replacing?

Rounded off 3 bolts on the TC. Just pulled the tranny leaving the TC giving me alot more room to access the nuts on the TC.

Yea you can leave the TC in when you drop it, and slide it right out once you have it on the ground

Typical cummins owner.

Are you talking about once you have the TC off the flywheel and have dropped the trans with the TC on it, if so then all it requires is pulling the TC right off the input shaft.
