    Hey, today I pulled my first tranny and it was out of a 91 chevy s10 pu. When I whent to put the tranny in it seems to go in most of the way but not quite. I am not able to get the shaft to line up with the bellhousing quite right so it sticks out about an inch and a half? Basicly the tranny aint meeting up with the bellhousing. do any of you guys have any tricks to get them lined up and back together as one?

    use an alignment tool to align the clutch center on the crank. then get a friend to turn the output shaft to get the splines to line up. the shaft has to fit into the end of the crank and that is what you do not have lined up.

    Sounds like you might have rested the tranny on the clutch splines and it moved on you. Realign the clutch and tryit again. Make sure the tranny is in neutral so you can have a little play by moving the rear yoke back and forth while installing it.

    Another problem could also be the pilot bushing. Did you replace it and if so is it installed straight and as far as it need to be? Is it the right size.?
