Default 1992 Ranger 2.3 Transmission Back in Help

I am having issues in getting the transmission back into the truck after slave cylinder clutch replacement. Had the truck up about a year or so trying to get it back in when I have time.

I can get it pretty close about an inch but the top as more of a gap and I can never get it on the dowels.

I have two transmission jacks but unfortunately no friends or family to help me.

Last time I used a ratchet strap to get it close and got one bolt in but never could get any others in and then it popped out pretty sure causing some threads to be messed up too.

Does the slave have to be pulled back from the viewport for it to go all the way in? Does the exhaust need to be pulled out as well?

I have some of the exhaust undone for another issue and seems the engine moves of course with the exhaust so may be I need to remove it from the manifold.

About to just sell the truck as is or donate it at this point.

Sounds like the clutch disk isn't lined up right with the pilot bearing, if you have the line up tool, pull the trans back and insert it, if its off center you will have to loosen the pressure plate and realine.
