Bolt the bellhousing in place. We like to use two transmission studs made out of old bolts in the top two holes to help guide the trans into place (arrow). The studs keep it aligned and prevent the input shaft from tweaking the clutch disc if the trans does not fully seat into the bellhousing. Never use the trans bolts to pull the trans into the bellhousing; that's how those dainty ears get broken on Muncie four-speeds. If the trans won't seat, read the Tech Tip sidebar we've included. If that doesn't work, there's something amiss. Pull the trans and figure out what went wrong.
