No big deal actually, the key is knowing when the converter is fully engaged. The Turbo-350 should have 1-1/8" inches of clearance from bell housing to converter pads. If you have to use the bolts to suck a bell housing to the block,STOP! Sometimes a converter will disengage while raising and installing the trans.
A tip to note here is once you put your bolts in to the engine thru the bell housin make sure the TC turns freely. If the TC doesn’t turn most likely the TC is not engaged into the pump gears correctly.
