Angry 5r110 trans install problems help

i have put in and taken out 10+ trans and never had a real issue but this has be stumped.

when i get the trans mated to the engine i am unable to rotate the flywheel to put the nuts on the TC. tonight it the THIRD time i have put in and taken out the trans on my truck. and am still unable to turn the flywheel i have as far as to put the starter back in and do it that way but not even that worked. i am lost

I was told that the TC was not fully seated so i did everything i could to make sure that it was is there anything else i should make sure i do before i try this a fourth time.

No it doesn't make a difference for 4x4 and 2x4 other then a couple mounting things and a transfer case. The best way to do it is either be a body builder and turn it about 1 degree through the starter hole ORRRR... NOW THIS IS VERY TRICKY....

The thing experienced people do are bolt the transmission to the block and dont tighten the bolts all the way, now slide the transmission back just a little while making sure the TC is still inside the pump (If it isn't, it will literally destroy the pump from the inside out), once you have it ever so slightly out a little bit, you will have enough room to force the flywheel to turn over. The next step is CRUCIAL, you can NOT tighten the TC bolts all the way while the transmission is slid back as this will pull the TC out of the pump and destroy it as stated above. You need to do it in small increments.

I hope this helped you and if you need anything else, private message me and I can call you.
