Maybe you should try putting the trans in gear (4th gear would be the best). Rotate the transmission input shaft from the yoke slightly back and fourth. Input shaft teeth might not be lining up with clutch teeth.

Yep, uauslly I slip the driveshaft into the tranny and then while wiggling the tranny, have someone twist the DS back and fourth until it slides in. It is a PITA I know, been there many times.

Sometimes I walk away from it for a few minutes, have a beer, and try it again. It seems to work better that way.
