were these both EZ30D trans? ...if so sounds like you are mixing VDC and non-VDC trans there for different shaft shapes.yes but i did put a little pressure on the shaft in an up and down force while installing the engine, hopefully this would not damage the pump, what i did do though, is pull the torque converter out of the donor car and my car and put the wrong one back in my car, the original came out with the long tube shaft attatched and the donor didnt, therefore no pump, totally stupid i know, would running the car without the long tube on the converter do any damage, there is no noises from auto while running. will be pulling auto out and changing torque converter for the right one, alot of work for a really stupid mistake
exactly the same just one torque converter came out with the long tube shaft attached and the other didnt, I had to put the wrong one back without noticing like a dumbass, i have a whole other car for spares which is exactly the same model with vdc, swapped engines as mine has the subaru weak as piss designed head gasket, so it leaks, just that i took the torque converter out to change the auto front seal and the other one i took out because im an idiot lol and thats that
i will be changing head gaskets on the old engine so i have a spare, is there head gaskets that will do their job for this model and not the piece of **** type that are in it?
