So of the starter is bolted up it doesn't turn? Or simply unplugged from the harness? Sounds like a bad starter?

no, i had to move the cranksaft to get the torqu converter off, it seems that once the transmission was bolted on everything locked up, and thats where I a now. Im 99% sure the transmission is the reason it wont turn but my question is how do i get it to?

What engine did you install? What FLEX PLATE is in there currently? Did you by any chance install a 07-08 CVT backed engine, az that's would make the flex PLATE different...

Seems like maybe something is binding. When you were bolting on the torque converter to the flexplate you had to move the crank to get a wrench through the inspection hole and tighten the torque converter nuts. So engine was spinning at that time? Correct?
Spinning the crankshaft bolt on the front pulley should move it unless something is physically jammed.
Look through the inspection cover between engine and tranny and see whats binding.

Just because the starter is spinning visually when its outside the engine doesn't mean
1. Starter motor is strong enough to turn an engine
2. Starter motor is getting enough amps to crank an engine over. It almost seems like it could be a starter issue and perhaps either a wrong diagnosis initially on the hydrolock or battery....or the hydrolock killed the starter or battery ....check you GROUND connection on the tranny. That's where starter gets its grounding point..

If you CAN'T manually spin the crank then you need to see if you can see what's binding and correct it.

Tighten those tranny to engine bolts back slowly while periodically checking where the bind is while you manually spin the engine. I don't know what it is as I've never had this issue. Did you look at (compare)everything before engine swap. Also, are you using your flex plate or out of the 05? Or you transferred your original?

I was doing just that when i got your email saying you responded. I used the flex plate of the 05.
this is what i found, it seems as i tighten the bolts i find that it rubs against the housen. I thought it may be bent but when i loosen the bolts it spins fine

I don;t mean to offend but the tranny is the same as yours correct? Auto or manual is what I mean. The flywheels could possibly be different? Really not sure beyond that. Hope maybe Orange can get back to you today.

^^^Exactly, was the donor engine coming from a vehicle that was manual (flywheel) and you installed a flex plate and bolted it to the new engine?

well The folks I bought I from said it came from a 5 speed just like mine. BUUUUUUt not that remember while swapping the new engine did have a guiding pin in the same spot that the transmission guiding pin went in. I had to remove the pin from the engine to get it to mount. I pulled the tranny and these are the same flywheel and plate that are on mine. ahhhh!!!!! its been almost a month without my car im dying!!!!

I would probably be as lost as you at this point again. Did you put your parts back on and try? That's all I can think of...
