I thought I read somewhere that it'll kind of hit a stop, then turn it a little and push it the rest of the way on?

Thanks, Jeff
That's pretty much it. You'll probably actually have to wiggle it around a bit, rotating side to side, etc. to get it to mesh up and go on. MAKE SURE the tranny is flush with the block before you start your first bolt. It's easy to try and use the bolts to bring it up tight and break off chunks of your tranny or bell housing.
