Pounding and banging or using the screws to pull transmission into place IS NOT THE WAY TO DO IT!!!!!!!!

If the transmission won't slide up nice and smooth, right into place then you either have the brake release cam right on top of the clutch spring, or the most likely problem is that you let the basket drive/brake assembly drop down after removing the transmission.

Anytime you remove the transmission you must make sure the brakes are seated all the way up into the brake drum.  You just need to turn the brake release cam and at the same time push the basket drive up as far as it will go then let the brake release cam go.  The basket and basket drive/brake assembly will stay up in place if you don't mess with the brake release cam while the transmission is out.
