Okay, so I moved the TC all the way beck into the case. Didnít feel anything or hear any clicks but Iíve rotated it all around and itís not going back any further. The tips of the mounting studs are approximately 3/4Ē inside the outer surface of the bell housing. I was able bring the transmission forward enough to where the two alignment pins on the engine block were just about touching, and well aligned with the bolt pattern on the BH. I could also see that the studs were starting to become visible in the flexplate holes. Next I was able to start a couple of the main bolts and gradually was able to pull the transmission into contact with the block, but with no more distance to go the studs were only flush with the front of the FP, not through enough to catch any of the nuts. Hmmmmm, somethingís not right, I thought.
I tried to turn the engine with a big socket on the balancer nut but it did not budge. Uh oh, donít like that at all.
