I sent a message to a friend of my whos handle is, "saturntech". He is really good and if he has time, he will help you out.
Let me know if he has not gotten back to you by tommorrow afternoon and I will send a message to another friend. Hopefully, and they probably will unless they are out or swamped, they will respond soon and we can get some idea to helpo you out. It is really odd, but one of these guys might just know a trick as they have seen it all. It will just be a matter of time and them being able to get back to you if they are able. They will not leave you hanging. They always help as we help each other, so if saturntech does not get with you tommorrow, he is either not working right now or just can't take any more workload. The smae will be true of my other friend. I am sorry I have not been able to figure out a solution but I have never n=been so stumped. Both of these techs have helped me out and I have helped them when it comes to expertise, but this is a tough one. But maybe not to one of them.
I hope we can get you figured out. We have not failed at solving a customers problem yet, so just hang in there. I know this is frustrating as I have fought with a few trannys myself and this kind of stuff happens. I usually just had issues with getting it to line up perfectly as it is a tight and has to be perfectly straight to get a converter or even a manual tranny and clucth to seat correctly. Don't get frustrated and start threading nolts and tightening bolts to pull it the rest of the way, it could damage something.
So, I will look tommorrow afternoon, I will probably be working anyway, and get with you to see what the status is.
Take a break and get away from the car and relax for a while. Sometimes that can help a lot more than you think it would.
