So, after dropping the back of the tranny, unbolting the bell housing from the engine block, removing the starter and unbolting the torque converter from the flywheel, (I forgot to mark it the first time I took it off), I was able to move the torque converter onto the tranny as it should have been. I bolted everything back up, got the correct starter and was able to start the car. It sounds like crap. There's a loud squealing noise coming from the back lower half of the engine. Sounds like the flywheel may now be warped. Starter doesn't always catch and I have to turn the motor over by hand a few turns. Idles like crap. Very rough. I guess I lost a lot more tranny fluid than I thought cuz I've put in a quart and it's barely registering on the dip stick. Needless to say, I'm frustrated.
