Been having trouble chasing down a problem starting my '94 YJ 2.5L (previous thread: NO start on engine swap). I'm thinking it's a timing thing and, while sorting this out in my head, I realized the error I may have made and need you more experienced folks to scrutinize my [lack of] thinking.

The replacement engine was from a Jeep with a manual tranny and mine has an automatic. Attached to the replacement was the flywheel, pressure plate, and clutch disc. When I swapped the flywheels and related stuff, I didn't think anything about aligning the flywheel and the torque converter pan (for lack of a better term) in any particular reference to the crankshaft position. My question is this: Did I have to align this so the notches in the pan are in the proper place for the CKS to operate properly? If so, is there any trick to realigning it without removing the tranny?

Ever so humbly submitted...
