You did it wrong when pulling it out. You should have removed the bolts holding the torque converter and pushed it away before taking the engine out. That way the torque converter would stay seated correctly.
Once the torque converter is on the input shaft, turn it and ease it in as far as possible and ensure it is seated correctly.
After engine is in and is flush with transmission, ensure the torque converter turns freely before installing and tightening transmission to engine mounting bolts first.
Tighten torque converter bolts after above steps.
