1996 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 12300 miles
i am replacing my motor in my truck and am having a hard time mounting the transmission to the engine cuz I think the torque converter isn't all the way in the transmission because when I tighten the transmission housing to the engine I can't turn the motor over by the crankshaft or flywheel, but when I loosen the bolts around the housing which gives me a gap less than a quarter of an inch then it will spin freely. What am I doing wrong or what is the cheapest most efficient way of doing this? I believe the torque converter needs to go back at least more than an eigth to a quarter of an inch more into the pump but how do I do this and it has been weeks. I don't know what else to do.
have the same problem?
