I assume the gearbox is still in the car bolted up.
Listen to ch7472 carefully. You can not put convertor on the flywheel first.
If you do, you wont seat the convertor properly in the pump gears of the auto, and it wont go more than 100km.(maybe 0 kms)
I know first hand as it cost me $600 several years ago, as the converter dropped out "1 click" and i didn't notice and died after 50km's. Just check after bolted up, but with the convetor nuts loose, that the converter can move back and fwd a mm or 2, and isnt jammed into auto.
edit, DONT forget the steel sandwitch plate, or you will have to start over again
