I could shove it half way back into the hole it seals before it tightens up.

It sounds like it has the wrong seal in place [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
There is not much to go wrong there in the seal area. The torque converter snugs into the front pump and the flex plate and bell housing holds it all in alignment. If there were alignment issues then the front pump would be bad as well.
Only other option is the tranny vents have plugged and the front seal was weaker than the rear and it blew it out.
The vent is in the front just above the front pump on the 999's if that is what you have.
