Yes but it sure makes it easier if you have a tranny jack, one of those low level kind with the adjustable base where the tranny sits. Then once you get it out then you can see if the torque converter has a grove in it where the seal runs, if so you will need a speedy sleeve and a new front pump seal. When you put the converter back on make sure you get it in all the way or you will break the front pump. HTH


And if there is no groove in the torque converter seal surface, then replace the bushing and seal in the front pump where the converter slides into the pump.
