Yeah this is kind of tricky, no real way to explain it but easiest if you see it done. Pull the convertor out, slide it onto the input shaft until it sits there, then slowly spin it while pushing gently in at the same time. It should have 3 distinct "steps" as it slides in. Keep trying and don't give up--you're acquiring valuable mechanical skills that'll save you money in the future--or make you money. Also be careful when you jack it back up--I assume you're working on the ground. If the tranny tilts down (at the convertor end) or gets banged around, the convertor can slip out one notch. Then it works fine for a day or two until it chews up the convertor and pump splines. (Personal experience) Then you just have to remember that an operation is always faster the second time around.
