Can you remove the flex plate torque converter from the blown engine of a 1999 Ford Escort ZX2 automatic in order to install a new engine with a manual transmission?
yes BE SURE TO REMOVE PILOT BEARRING IT IS PRESSD IN NEAR THE REAR SEAL it can be difficult sometimes to remove in the past i had removed pressed bearings by loading up with grease as full as possible then use a shaft that fits almost perfectly and thump it this will create hydrlic pressure and press the bearing out iYes you can and there is no pilot bearing,Front wheel drive transaxles do no use pilot bearings.

Consider the advantages of regular vehicle maintenance with a change of the fluid and filter. Over time and distance, your vehicle’s automatic transmission fluid begins to break down as additives are depleted; it oxidizes and loses its ability to cool and lubricate; its ability to protect…
the best answer i have for this is. buy a haynes manual. there are many things i can tell you like take the wheels, cv-shafts, block the engine, disconnect transmission lines/shifter & kickdown, take off torque converter cover and bolts and remove transmission bolts. however the manual has pictures and allows you to get a better idea of what you are doing.
