Stator Shaft Help

As I was dropping in the engine on a recent rebuild, I had my wife clean the tranny shafts after some recent sand blasting and some apparent holes in my cover I put on it. While cleaning, she pulled out the stator shaft on accident. I cant get the shaft to go back in to the threads on the shaft, and now the converter wont go in all the way. Is that supposed to happen?? Never had it happen to me so I don't know...

Ideas??

Give us a clue what brand , make, model of vehicle or transmission .

Stator shafts do not usually fall or pull since they need to be some what strong and stable.

First, I have never ever seen a stator shaft that will come out of a transmission, and I have owned well in excess of 100 thousand transmissions. Broken stator shafts do happen at times as many are made of cast iron and not steel. Stator shafts are so-named because they do not move (they are static) and they hold the stator inside the converter so that it does not move either.

Second, I have never seen a shaft on the front of any transmission with threads on it except for a few 50s and earlier standards that used a nut to hold the bearing in place.

So, somewhere we are having a communication problem.

To be of any help to you, we need to know make, model, year, and engine for the vehicle. It would also help to know which transmission you have and in some cases we must know the transmission type. And if that is not enough, we will also need pictures.
