Torque Converter Question

Okay.

My dad and I are working on my transmission. We just got the new one a couple days ago.

I have a question to ask. Does the torque converter have to be aligned to the flywheel in a special way?

the bolt holes on the flywheel are not perfectly circular

each bolt hole is slightly mis-aligned to ensure proper orientation of the flywheel to the torque converter

Please make sure that the converter is all the way on the input shaft, it might seat in 2 3 times
