First of all good meeting everyone. I have a 02:tundra 4x4 and I am putting a motor in out of a 03 tundra 2 wheel drive when I tighten the block to the transmission the engine locks up, I have tried it with the torque bolted to the flywheel and with putting the torque converter in the transmission first it does do the double click and the block goes tight against the transmission without having to pull it together with the bolts. I am lost could the flywheel be different? Or could it be bent? Please help!

why not try your 4x4 flywheel.

I think @Lunas may have your solution. There are 2 different TC and 2 different auto transmissions listed for an 01'. A 4x4 and 2x4 model would be my guess.
I am curious, let us know what you find comparing the two TC and if your 4x4 TC lets you bolt it up correctly.

Ok I finally got it figured out thanks for the help. The tc for a 2 wheel drive is different than a 4x4 and then when you put the tc in it takes 3 clicks not 2. Thanks again ,I am sure I will have more problems which I will need help with. I am going to try to start it tomorrow.
