1961 buick torque converter

hay guys im workin on a 61 buick lesabre, with a 364 nailhead and what i believe is a 3 speed hydramatic.

the problem is that on the ring gear around the torque converter, where the starter contacts with, are all chewed up. (no i didnt knaw on them!)

it looks like if i flipped it around, i would have proper starting, until the teeth started wearing out again.

but... i cant seem to get the torque converter out of the trans!

is there a special way to pull it?

thanks for all your help!
