Question about 2000 Subaru Outback
98 Subaru outback. pulled the torque convertor to replace. I can't get the torque convertor to seat on the main shaft. HAve tried rotating the convertor and pressing in and also clamping with a great deal of pressure, but it stops with at least 1/2 inch to go.
Unfortunately there is really no "trick" to make it any easier. You just need patience. Make sure you are supporting all of the converters weight while trying to seat it. Tilting it slightly in different directions can help it find its grooves. Also a small amount of wheel bearing grease on the tips of the spline teeth can help a lot. Trying to force it or use pressure will not help. In fact ti will damage the teeth on the spline and then your in for big $$$. If you know it is starting to slide down the spline then stopping just before it seats then it is most likely that you are holding it just a little crooked and the tip of the spline, part with no teeth, is not seating in side the converter. Just wiggle and jiggle until she drops in just don't force it.
