5R110 Torque Converter re install, did I trash the pump?
So I started a Cummins swap and I chose to retain my 5r because I liked how it shifted, I had the Cummins mated to it just fine, I pulled it back out to do some work to the motor before final install, and it kinda pulled the converter out with it a little bit. I went to reinstall the converter, and it doesnt quite seat all the way, I started to tighten the bellhousing down before I realized it got real tight with a 3/8" gap between engine and trans. Looking down inside the pump behind the front seal, I notice what looks like a thin metal washer looking thing with two nubs on it that appear to match the two flat spots on the converter.. This piece seems loose and just flops around, I am assuming it is sliding over the converter.
Ive fought this for 2 days hoping I can do the whole back and forth thing and it will finally seat into place but to no avail. did I pop something loose when I was tightening the bellhousing?
edit: what I was looking at was the pump gears. how loose should they be and am I just being unlucky with it not sliding thru? I can move it real easy with a pick.
