This "friend" probably wrecked one or more with his wrench twisting prowess. As others have stated, you sound like you are doing fine. I would have dumped a quart or two of fluid in the converter before I slipped it on the input shaft. Also rubbed some fluid on the converter hub to get it passed the input seal. You probably didn't do that either but don't worry about it. If he really is your friend he would be over with you at least handing you tools.

Keep us posted on your progress!
