Question Rotating the Torque Converter.

Looking around the forums I didn't see what i needed so if there is a thread feel free to point me in the right direction. I have a 06 G6 2.4 w/oil cooler. I just had to replace the motor. (GF put a rod through the block) and in a late night rush to get the new one in I forgot to line up the torque converter bolt holes with the flex plate holes. Is there any way to spin the torque converter without pulling the motor back out? I'll do it if I have to but I only have a few hours on each weekend to work on it and wanna get it done asap. Thanks in advance everyone.

You should be able to easily spin the torque converter by hand. You just may need to separate the engine and trans a bit to give enough space for it to spin without dragging on the flexplate.
After it's lined up you should be able to turn the engine over by hand with a socket on the crank pulley bolt so you can get to all the torque converter bolts.
