First make sure you have 2 dowels and that they are in the block. Next clean them with some production paper and then clean the dowel holes in the trans. When you have the TC in the trans and offer it up you MUST be able to push the trans fully home against the block, by hand. If you have a gap and have to pull it together using bolts, chances are that the TC is not fully home. Once you have it together, snug up the 2 dowel bolts and poke you finger through the hole in the bell housing/starter hole and make sure the TC turns freely. If it doesn't take the trans out again and check the TC is all the way in. You can measure between the face of the bell housing and the foot of the TC and then do the same between the flex plate (where the TC bolt hole is) and the block and see if the measurements are the same plus about 3-6 mm clearance. See many broken pumps in transmission due to incorrect fitting.

Dont worry about the loss of fluid from the TC, When fitted fill the trans to the bottom mark of the dipstick. Then fire up the engine with the trans in park and continue filling to the bottom mark. If you can gently run the car through R, then D, and L, with the wheels off the ground. Do this a couple of times and recheck the level. Quick spin around the block and recheck level again. Make sure you get a clean line of fluid on the dip stick as its easy to mistake the fluid line when filling due to it being in the filler tube and smearing on the dip stick.

Hope this helps.
