Any attempt to pull the tranny home with a bolt will result in the bolt breaking the tranny case at the bolt hole. Dont do that.

Check to confirm that the pilot bearing's inner diameter is larger than the outer diameter of the front main shaft where the bearing rides. If it does fit, check the alignment of the bellhousing as it may be off a little. If it is off a little and you force it together anyway be prepared to rebuild that tranny in about 40,000 miles.

Take your time and do it right.
