I'm not sure how you are doing this. Engine in the car or out, transmission in the car or out, both out, and what car? I use an old transmission input shaft when bolting the PP to the flywheel, disc installed over the splines on the shaft. There is a plastic short version of this that worhs fine too.
If either major component is in the car, or even on the shop floor, they slide together ONLY if there is no angle between bell housing and block rear web. If the transmission is in the car, and engine is being installed, the engine will necessarily be at an angle, and the transmission mounts need be loosened or removed to tilt the transmission to compensate. If the engine is in the car and transmission being mounted to the engine, it helps to jack-up the front of the engine to allow the transminnson input shaft to slide into the clutch at a slight angle. If the transmission shift linkage is installed with boots and carpeting, the job is nearly impossible as the rear of the transmission must be able to drop down to get a workable angle.
Is this helpful?
