Any help? Having a tough time getting the flywheel and torque studs lined up. I had them close when installing the engine, but then when I rotated the engine to line them up they just spun with the engine. I have a buddy coming to help so should be better now, but was wondering if anyone had any tips?

I had to lift the front of the motor a little with mine. Don't know that it was what did the trick or not. Played hell on me though. I ran the two bottom bolts in and used a small prybar to manipulate the tranny. Good luck with it. Sucks doing it by yourself.
