We're talking no more than a quarter inch longer bolt before they would grab the threads on the back of the engine.

I was considering buying two slightly LONGER bolts and trying to 'draw in' the tranny evenly on each side until the stock bolts will go in.

The gap now is so small I could not put my finger in between the tranny and the back of the motor. I would say the gap is no more than the length of the pilot bushing, and probably less. Does anyone think my idea to finalize this is good, or bad idea?
I've never done a clutch job, but this sounds like there is a little teat or something on the back of the engine that is not lining up with the hole in the bell housing.

Sounds like you need to slide it out, wiggle everything a little, and then try sliding it in again.

Too bad you aren't The Hulk.

you have the clutch disc and the input shaft misaligned. the teeth are hitting.

this is really common. if you can back the trans out like 1/2an inch and take a pry tool to the flywheel to move it a wee, it will likely slip right into place. The alternative is to rock the fuck out of the transmission as it goes in.

it can also be that the input shaft and the clutch arent axially aligned right too. this is common. hard to see when directly under a 95lb slug of metal while you are worried about it crushing your mellon.

Technical terms up there, SciFiGuy. Hit me up if you need definitions.

DO NOT pull it up using bolts. Carnage usually ensues...

I finally DID get the transmission back in. By rocking the hell out of it. I will wrap the job tomorrow afternoon. But I think next time I will go to the shop for this one. I dunno...changed gear oil in front and back, new starter as well, new slave. Spent like 350 total, and 80 of that was the tranny jack anyway. I put a towel on it not to scratch the thing, so it goes back to the store on a 20% restock. Still looks like new. The other tools, a few others, I'll just keep. The starter was free, it was an exchange on a lifetime replacement warranty.

Depends what it came off of, or what the spacing is between the holes.
