can't get center support to drop in

Hi I have an 94 aode from my mustang gt I'm in the process of putting the transmission back together I'm waiting on some valve body parts to come in. But I can't get the center support to drop into the planet carrier for some reason don't know if its because of the bushing being warped or something else I'm planning on ordering a new center support bushing and forward sun gear bushing. Think its the bushing warped or something else the sprag or whatever its called inside the planet carrier seems to be in perfect shape can't figure out why it won't drop in it stops where the center groove is in the bushing on the center support but feels like its binding at the sprag. Can anyone give me any suggestions on what it could be? Thanks in advance!

I'm assuming that since it's been a month you figured it out. But for everyone else, with the transmission being held vertically with the front up, while wiggling the center support you can turn the output shaft and it will fall into place.

Other than that, it's hard. Stupid hard.
