you just roll the flex plate and remove the bolts one at a time while turning.

TC bolts aren't really a walk in the park for anything, but with the Cummins you can use a barring tool removing half the stress involved. Make sure you push it forward too when going back in, I've worked on some dodges where I forgot to push the tc all the way forward and ran into a binding issue and had to replace both the tc and input shaft. I like to use red lock tight on the bolts as well, but that's my opinion, not everyone recommends to use it.

I'm going to take a guess that you just removed the bottom inspection plate? That works on GM's and such, or at least the older ones, but not on these. There is a torque converter bolt access cover on the other side of the transmission adapter. By the heat exchanger. It is held in place by two 10 or 12mm bolts. Remove that and you will have access. Then I would use a flywheel turner, or barring tool to rotate and access all of the bolts.
I usually loosen them all just a little bit first, then pull them out. don't back them out too much the first time around, or they will catch on the engine/transmission adapter.
Hope this helps.

Thanks Sean. I made some calls the next day and that was it. Ther dodge trannies have that plate just behind the heat exchanger. I had my uncle turn the flywheel with a pry-bar. Had blue loctite on them and will use blue locktite on the new bolts. I removed the flex-plate and installed the new BD flex-plate. I can't believe how tinny the factory one is. If this engine was behind an Allison in a bigger truck i am guessing they would use something better than stamped steel. Thing sounds like sheet metal when you hit it with a wrench.
