Exclamation flywheel/flexplate won't turn after aode removal and reinstall? !!!

I pulled my aode to replace the rear main seal and to do some mild overhaul work to the transmission. I just put the tranny back in and bolted it up, and now I can't turn the crank pulley to get to the torque converter/flexplate bolts! While I had the transmission out I replaced the 1/2 and 2/3 accumulators and did a baumann valve body recalibration. There is NO fluid in the tranny or converter right now, but I drained them both before I pulled the tranny and the crank would turn by hand then so wtf? I am 99% sure that the torque converter is all the way in since the bolts pass through the flexplate as they did before.

Anyone have any ideas?...especially ones that don't require me pulling the aode out again as that was loads of fun!

After reading another thread about the same issue in with an aod, I'm convinced its that the torque converter is not fully seated. Yippie hooray and woopie-dee-doo!

Anyone know if you can seaty the torque converter with out fully removing the transmission? I know it clunked twice when I put it in, I guess it didn't get that last position quite right. In the words of the south park boys "dude...weak"!

You will have to drop it down to put both hands on the converter and twist-and-shove to seat it.

I remember reading about looking for 3 "thunks" with my Stallion converter.
