you put the torque converter back into the tranny, you have to line up the splines for the pump correctly. then you bolt the box back to motor and then bolt the torque converter to the flex plate. you will know if the torque converter has gone in correctly if there is a gap between it and the flex plate when you bolt the tranny back to the motor.
the torque converter will fill by itself once you have the motor going.

Install the converter into the trans first, then bolt the trans to the block, then bolt the converter to the flexplate. Doing it any other way will almost always result in a broken oil pump in the box.

Also, make sure the converter is located into the trans properly. From memory it goes into the box in 3 'stages'. Just keep twisting and turning it until it pops down 3 times.

you MUST slide the torque convertor into the box first while rotating the convertor to lock all the splines and pump drive in then lift box and convertor onto engine as one if its a new convertor or drained of fluid fill it a bit first
