Today: 3 failed attempts at dropping the 200TDi into the truck. Just can't seem to get the trans & engine to come together. Anyone got advice?

Make sure the push-rod for the clutch isn't hung up when you're mating the two together...it can prevent it from slipping that last " " and wreak havoc.

Can you get it close enough to put some really long bolts between bell housing and block?

If often struggled and found that I wasn't properly in line

I haven't ever done a 200tdi but used this technique on a variety of engines over the years!

I do them out of the truck and install as one big lump. I used to try to do it with the trans and tcase in situ but its too damn much work and frustration.
A leveler on your engine hoist is key

Bad idea. You may not have the splines lined up and you will jam them together and have bigger issues. You need to spin the crank or the tranny a bit so that everything lines up and whatever you do, DON'T force it together.

Yeah. I should have said that ... Basically it was just to get it lined up right ... I'd always have the engine at the wrong angle. That's why I said long bolts.

Anyway after 3 attempts he obviously needs to so something different as current technique isn't working.

Similar to what Jason said... I get some bolts that fit and cut the heads off to guide the bits together... cut slots in the ends so you can take them out with a screwdriver.

AN engine hoist load leveler also makes a huge difference.

Make sure you do not have the Dowell pins in both the motor and trans been there done that .

Also I find it helps to rotate the brake drum on the transfer case back and forth.

Wiggling the motor as well.

If you don't have a load leveller for the engine hoist (I don't), a ratchet strap will work.

He's pretty good at inserting the main shaft into the clutch opening for a fee ...
