    Never done this before, learning as I go and trying to figure it out. I have the replacement transmission back in and the bell housing bolted to the engine. I made sure the TC was seated all the way back on the input shaft. My problem now is trying to line up the holes to bolt the torque converter to the flex plate. I am trying to rotate the plate by prying in between the teeth of the plate but the torque converter is rotating at the same time not allowing me to align the bolt holes. Any suggestions?

    Post your question in the "ask a Toyota mechanic" thread, OP.
