pulling tranny, order of events?

Once again the seal in the old 97 f350 is puking fluid at a rapid rate.
It did this a couple years back and I replaced the notorious front seal to very good effect. At that time I had a very questionable jack, so for safety reasons I took the transfer case loose then removed the tranny. It all went pretty well but could have been better with a game plan.

This evening, I have a very nice jack, (Jet 2000lb) and have the cross member and both drive shafts out, starter off, all wires and linkage disconected, and bolts in bell housing broke loose.
It is time to yank that baby and I am wondering if I will regret leaving the transfer attached when i go to back it off there.
And am also wondering about the torque converter, does a pro take it loose from the flywheel before pulling, or back the tranny out then take the converter loose? If I remember right I brought the converter out with the tranny last time and was pretty concerned about dropping it out the front on the way out of there.

This is an open request for, "If I was you," comments.

I'm taking a couple hour break and then will get back under it. thank you!

Thank you Chop. I will do it.
What do you think about pulling tranny and transfer case together?

It can be done with or without pulling the transfer case. I have done both and it's much easier to remove the extra 6 bolts and drop the transfer case separately. For the converter, once the bolts are out bolt on a piece of scrap metal or a box wrench to one of the inspection plate bolts. It will stick up and prevent the converter from sliding off the input shaft.

Sunday morning and the project looks more encouraging after a good nights sleep.

JSchuricht, great idea bolting a box end wrench across the bell housing to prevent a slide off. Thank you!

One more cup of coffee and I gotta get started.
Thanks again!
