Torque Converter

Trying to remove the tranny on my 95 F-250 diesel. These are the steps I'm at:

18.Remove lower torque convener cover bolts using a 1O mm socket and remove cover. (DONE)
19.Remove rear engine cover plate bolts
20.Remove starter. (DONE)
21.Remove access hole rubber plug Use a 15/16 inch socket to rotate crankshaft (6202) to gain access to the converter drain plug. Remove plug Drain torque Converter.

I don't know what the 'rear engine cover plate' is nor do I see any bolts that might be associated with it. What am I missing here?

Seeing as the flywheel is right up against the torque converter, is there supposed to be a hole in the flywheel that will give me access to the torque converter drain?

When trying to remove the bolts that hold the flywheel tight to the torque converter, the whole engine turns over and the flywheel moves. Any ideas for holding it in place?

There is no reason to remove starter. I fact I use it to bump the engine over using the solenoid on the passenger inner fender to get to all the torque convertor nuts. Take the six bolts holding trans to engine block last. A lot of these torque convertors do not have a drain plug in them. No rear engine plate to mess with unless you are going to replace the rear main seal.

Those are studs, just remove the nuts.

EDIT: Use a 6 point socket on those nuts, Usually pretty tight and could have thread locker
