I have a 95 Nissan Pathfinder VG30E engine and am tying to do an engine swap , but problem is, I for the life-of-me can't get the torque converter back in the tranny far enough! Any tricks would be appreciated!:welcome:
I'm supposed to have 1.08 inches between the converter bolt holes to the edge of the bell housing (and that's what I need according to the measurements on the flex plate) and I only have 1/2 inch. Yes I tried putting the engine up to it and it comes against the torque converter 1/2 inch before the bell housing.
One thing I do on particularly sticky ones is grab on both sides of the converter with my fingertips and pull back out slightly, turn a tiny smidge then push back in. Repeat repeat repeat as needed or until you get sick of it.
