    i have a 98 ford ranger that i am swapping a 302 engine and tranny into.. from a 97 explorer...yesterday i went to reassemble the transmission to the engine(neither are in my ranger yet) and when they were married, the crank pully wouldnt turn at all...seized, but when you losen the perimiter bolts that marry the trann;y and engine even just 1/8 of an inch, the crank pully moves just fine... tranny, has the torque converter in it, and i promise it is fully locked back on the tranny shaft... engine has the fly wheel, and the torque converter has 4 studs that go through the fly wheel when mounted to the engine...when they are separete, fly wheel spins as it should, as does the torque converter....its a weird anomoly....would love some help if any of you guys got any ideads... oh and before i initially pulled the transmission off the engine, the crank pully worked fine, allowing me to pull those 4 bolts from the torque converter that go through the flywheel...
