i am in the middle of tearing this motor down and I can't for the life of me figure out how to get this rear seal retainer off. The FSM doesn't specify how to do it, and a search doesn't turn up any info. What am I missing? What I think is a spacer with 10 holes, that the flex plate bolts to, should come off. But how?
the front spacer can be removed its just on there you need to pry it off. I just did this when I changed my rear main. its stuck on but can be pry'ed off hit it with a hammer and just wiggle it out with some screwdrivers.
