Sounds like the shaft is to long from the the transmission make sure you have the right transmission. Measure the length on the shaft on the new tranny and compare it to the old 1.

Should the torque converter spin freely after you install the engine and you still haven't installed the torque converter bolts

Maybe put the bolts in and try it if installed correctly the converter should be engaged in the Pump of the auto box.
at worst pump drive broken.

Steps to remove install clutch in a 1994 Pontiac Firebird

Start by disassembling the center console.Then,remove the shifter boot and shifter.Disconnect the wiring harness from the trans and tuck it aside(bungee cords work good for this).Remove the bracket that attaches the torque arm from the rear axle.Mark the universal joint at the axle(so it goes back in the same way),and remove the four bolts on the joint.Lower the driveshaft and slide it out of the trans(put a drain pan down to catch the trans fluid).Remove the clutch slave cylinder from the bellhousing(2 bolts).Unbolt the crossmember and lower it with the trans,then remove from trans.Remove the bolts from the bellhousing to the block(probably want someone's help at this point as the trans is heavy).Then slide the trans out.Remove the 6(?) pressure plate bolts,and remove the plate and disc.If the flywheel surface is cracked from overheating,you'll probably want to replace it also.If it just has minor glaze,you could just take a sanding block with 80 grit paper to clean it up.(I have started the engine and used a high speed sander against the surface to make a"swirl" finish,but this is not for the faint of heart).A good replacement clutch kit will come with a plastic alignment tool,new disc,remanufactured pressure plate,and a throwout bearing.Install the new parts in reverse of removal,leave the pressure plate finger tight,center the disc with the tool,and tighten the bolts in an alternating pattern in several passes,making sure the alignment tool doesn't bind.Put the new thowout bearing in the fork,and put it back together.(getting the trans back into the car will be the hardest part,but don't force it.)If the input shaft doesn't want to line up in the disc,try turning the input shaft a little and try again(gotta get the splines lined up).Now put everything back together,use a skim coat of silicone gasket maker when reinstalling the shifter.(It's been about 15 years since i quit the Pontiac dealer tech job,but this should be enough info for a do-it-yourselfer to get it done as far as I remember)

Trying to take out an automatic transmisson out of a 1998 chevy S-10 got all the bolts and electrial and hoses lose but transmission is still hung up need help

Did you take out the bolts that connect the torque converter to the flywheel? If not, this is what is most likely hanging you up. Unlike a manual transmission where the clutch spins freely, the torque converter is bolted to the flywheel. To access these bolts, look on the bottom side of the bellhousing where the transmission mates to the engine. Tou should find an access hole covered with a black plastic plug. The hole should be roughly 2-3" in size. Remove this cover and manually rotate the flywheel using the accessory drive pulle bolt or have someone bump the key until the bolts are visible. If my memory serves me, there should be 4 bolts. Remove these and the transmission should come free. Just make sure it is properly supported to prevent injury. Hope this helps out. Have a GREAT day!

sounds like the torque convertor is not slid all the way onto the input shaft of transmission and it is binding when you tighten the bell housing bolts.

I have a 2001 hyundai santa fe and we are replacing the engine but are having a hard time with the matting of the engine and trans. The flywheel sticks when we bolt them together but turns freely when not...

Make sure the car is level. Seems to be that the flywheel bolts are hanging you up. They are binding make sure each one is not in a bind and bolt all the flywheel bolts first.Good Luck!!!

Cannot remove transmission

Did you remove the torque converter bolt's from the fly wheel, should be 4. You will have to turn the motor by hand to remove all the bolt's.

How to remove a flywheel of a 1983 jeep

You have to remove the transmission to access the flywheel bolts. It is bolted to rear of crankshaft. If you need to unbolt the converter on an automatic, you still need to remove trans. There is nothing inside the bellhousing that you can service without removing transmission.
