Transmission Gap

Ok I finally got my transmission up and trying to get her done..But theres one problem...

There is a inch gap or so between the bell housin and the motor.I dont understand I jacked it up even and everything But it just wont go all the way in.

Is this becauuse the tranny has to be put in diffrently or something I put it in as straight as possible.Is my splines on the input shaft possibly not lined up with the clutch?? Im in desperate need of help I been trying for days this is ****ing annoying...Please post me if u kno any easy way to close this gap or do this soab.Thank you all very much

when you put the clutch on did you use the clutch alignment tool, if not the that may be what it is, or you can try to spin the input shaft to line up the splines, but i would check the clutch alingment thing if you didnt use that.

yeah and if the clutch disc is on 1/4 inch off the input shaft wont slide into the pilot bushing without a crapload of work.

there are those little rods sticking out of the motor side that have to go into the holes along the outside of the bellhousing before you can put in all the bolts, are you sure all those are in, because mine lined up well too but it wouldnt go all the way on, and that turned out to be my problem.

No there are dowels on the flywheel that the pressure plate has to go onto. If you used the alignment tool it's aligned fine. Just wiggle and turn the tranny until it slides in. It should go with a little bit of playing with it.

hmm maybe take the bellhousing back off and look at the pilot bearing to make sure its straight, if not you just need to jank that tranny around until it goes in lol
