Removing my auto, one manual says I have to remove these bolts. The other doesnt mention it.
Any advice please.

Yes you should remove them. The bolts are used to hold the torque converter to the flex plate (which is bolted to the crankshaft).

Are you draining the oil out of the gearbox first, or just using a dummy tailshaft yoke?

Also is better if you remove the gearbox with the torque convertor still in the gearbox to save on damaging the front seal in the gearbox
