check for blown fuse or +12v down at the trans. without 12v going to the trans. default is 3rd gear.
you say everything was the same between the 2 transmissions except for 1 less clutch in each gear. well, that would be incorrect, the internals are the same.
what is more than likely different would be the valve body, separator plate, and inner passeges for the valve body on the case.
if you didnt double check inside the pan for any possible differences in the elctronics, its quite possible that it blew a fuse because of the electronics.
another possibility could be an open or shorted harness, shift solenoid/s, or a possibility that you may have inadvertantly pinched the wiring harness in between the block and bellhousing.
have you had it scanned for trouble codes? is the SES light on?
