normally you pull the bottom of the dust cover from the trans, and access the torque converter nuts from there. There will probably be 4 nuts. Turn the engine clockwise to get to the next one until they are all removed.

Too much compression? Pull the spark plugs might help.

hey guys, a little update, my bud die and I were working on it to day during class ( i blew the motor and I'm rebuilding it in my automotive class) and he accidentally removes the drain plug, so we had to wait for it to drain and we ran out of time, i did however turn the motor over with a breaker bar on the nut on the front of the motor and he said the torque converter moved a little, i believe i turn it clockwise correct? and how hard should it be to turn?

lol should have just put the plug back in. it will be relatively tough with the plugs in on compression. and the engine being "blown" probably isn't helping either.
