Hi, I’m Cary and I’ll be helping you today.
Please understand that I can't smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so patience is appreciated. I work part-time here on JustAnswer to help you and others repair their own vehicles, and I get credited by your ratings. So before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as needed, even after the rating..

No real good answer. AllData repair info call to remove transmission. However I would try remove the trans support and dropping the rear of the trans down. If the bolt hole does not line up. Either it is the wrong one, bent, or not installed in the correct position.
