AOD Removal Draining Converter '91 T-Bird

I am stuck! I'm trying to remove the AOD tranny in my '91 Bird and can't find where to drain the converter or remove the bolts that hold it to the flex-plate, as per the manual. I found the little port on the front tranny shim (for lack of a word to describe it) and I have the starter removed but I'll be darned if I see any access to the converter. All I see is the flex-plate. Manual is calling for a converter drain, then unbolting it from the flex-plate.
Is this correct info? Can I just remove the drive shaft, unbolt the tranny and pull it off with the converter in place. It doesn't look like there's room but... I have to remove the tranny to fix a front seal leak, so ignoring it won't work. I have everything unhooked except the drive shaft and the rear tranny brace. Anyone else pulled an AOD and can you help me with the right info to get the tranny out? Thanks in advance!
