if you're talking about the flexplate adapter you're not supposed to remove that. It is machined true after it is bolted to the crankshaft.
It's there because the engine, being of international origin, would not use the same flexplate/flywheel in a medium duty application.
I understand that this adapter is in the way of removing the camshaft, unfortunately for 6.0s and 6.4s the crank must be lowered before removing the camshaft.
