I would replace the seal around the converter and the big o-ring around the pump.Pull the bolts out of pump and tap,carefully the snout,tapping it side to side.The pump will come out,there will be an o-ring around it. The top bolts are easy if you have a real long extension,and ball swivel socket.You have to un bolt the converter,it is critical the converter is all the way into the pump. Tf you have any doubts weather the converter is all the way in,do not install the trans!Once the trans is bolted to the engine, you will have to lever the converter foward to install converter bolts.An external seal kit is cheap ,20 $.
