Mating Issues with 95-2.5L to 93 Automatic

Having a few problems lining up trans to engine. '95 YJ Jeep with a 2.5L had and automatic, still using the '95 Flywheel . Trans is a 93 YJ automatic for the 4cyl using the 93 torque converter. ive tried putting them together four times and i can get it tight on top but can't the bottom to come tight. Is there some kind of fitment issue i dont know about? Do i need the '93 flywheel? Or use the 95 t converter?

Are the ears on the torque converter seating in the pump?

It sounds as though the torque convertor isn't fully seated into the front pump of the automatic tranny. You must remove the transmission & make sure this is done properly.

Failure to seat the torque convertor will result in the torque convertor shattering the front pump in the tranny.

Note the notches on the torque converter shaft.


Note "ears" on the inside of the hole in the pump gear. Those must engage, otherwise the tranny won't seat all the way to the engine. If you force it on, it will break the pump.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

Sometimes they really fight you to go in all the way. What I do is place a finger under the nub that sticks out of the center and lift up slightly and press in towards the transmission. I spin the converter fairly quickly with my other hand and wiggle my finger up and down moving the converter slightly. It takes a bit but it will suddenly slide all the way in with a solid thump. When looking across the face of the bellhousing (where it bolts to the engine) you should see no part of the torque converter sticking past the bellhousing. If there is anything seen past the bellhousing, its not seated fully and will give you problems installing like you are experiencing now.

You are installing the T/C in the trans before you try to install the trans to the engine?

OK , dropped the trans today, had to spin the TC pretty good and lift and push, and the TC went in another inch or so. Everything went together pretty good after that. Thanks for the help guys.
