Default 02 wrx transmission wont go on! Urgent, Im moving in 2 weeks!

Hey guys I need help! I am moving in a few weeks and I currenly at a loss getting my transmission back in my bugeye. I have the studs lined up and bellhousing screws partially threaded, but it feels like im going to snap a bolt if I keep trying to close the gap by tightening the bolts.

I am about an inch off. I tried jacking up the trans all the way, jacking the front of the motor. Bolts still feel like they will break.

Here is my question... I tried turning the crank clockwise to line up the splines and it wont budge. Also tried turning the driveshaft and it wont budge. Does that mean the splines are aligned if the car is in gear?

Please help me get this mother on!

So you didn't use a clutch alignment tool?

I rock the engine back and forth while I rotate the crank bolt left and right. I can always get it to slide together. If you didn't put a thin layer of grease on the splines, you should. Never force it together by using the bolts. You will bend the main shaft backing plate and if you bend it enough, the car will pop out of gear constantly as the main shaft thrusts back. I learned this lesson the hardest way possible. It's the kind of mistake you only make once before you learn never to force it together. You'll need another person to try and get the bell housing all the way on the engine. Make sure the 2 dowel pins are aligned too. After I have it together, I put the trans in gear and rotate the crack bolt. You should see the axle spindles rotate as you rotate the crank bolt. Please, just don't force it together.
