Remove transmission, remove tc, lubricate tc hub with transmission assembly lube or ATF inside the spines and on the snout, push the tc onto the input shaft, spin the tc clockwise while firmly pushing inward, spin it again (same direction) while applying pressure, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, when in doubt...repeat. You should hear 2-4 decent thuds, or clunks, I only heard 2, but I felt 3 or 4. My tc was fully seated. Yours definately isn't. Also dumb question but the spacer/plate is installed between the block and trans correct? If not I'm unsure if it would cause issues. Good luck, I've had no issues with the 4r70w's cooperating, or 4L60's/700R4's but for some reason I always screw up installing tc's in 4T60's it drives me nuts. When in doubt step away, cool off, refocus, shake/jiggle the tc slightly while spinning/turning/pushing it in.
