Alright, Just pulled the tranny on my new 85 turbo wagon (GL) to replace the input seal on it.

the three shafts in the tranny, do they all need to be far enough in to where you can only see the splines? (as opposed to seeing the smooth metal at all).

The little rod is flush with the second one. The second one shows about half an inch of smooth metal.

I've spun it around many times hoping it would fit like the other, but it hasn't gone in. Will this hurt anything if it's left?

Thanks a bunch in advance,
-Dave

Just played with it again for a little while.

I can make it so the torque converter is all the way on the transmission.

When I pull it back out though the second rod is still out.

Is it fine to install and start driving with it like this? I don't want to screw it up and have to pull the tranny again.

thanks

4th page bump

anyone?

Doesn't really matter anymore since it's all put back together and I don't plan on taking it apart again, but I would like to know if it was done correctly :)

thanks
