350 Turbo Tranny Problems

I have a 83 olds cutlass 4-door. My buddy and I just dropped in a hopped up 350 in her. We got the car all fine turned and took it out for a drive. We stopped at the stop sign about 2 miles away when the car suddeny lost all of the gears, and We started hearing a whirring noise comming from the back of the engine. The car will sit there and rev, but there is no motion in any gear. The whirring sound increases with the rpms of the motor. We dont think the tranny is slipping. At least there was no burning smell comming from the tranny after we sat there and reved the motor. The transmission oil is full and bright pink. The transmission had no problems when the old engine was taken out about 4 months ago. All of the torque convertor bolts are still there. The car has a 350turbo transmission. IS the tranny complety shelled?

you probably didn't have the convertor pushed all the way into the pump when you tightened the engine in, this wipes out the front pump, thats the whirring sound, no pump, no go!

If the convertor bolts are all in there, Bob is mostlikely right. The rule is, "Don't force things together". If the Trans did not go completely against the engine by hand, there was a reason. You probably just found out what that was.

The torque convertor was not properly installed. We unbolted it and found it slid another 1/8" back. We rebolted the converter, and all is working now. The transmission seems to be working fine. All gears work with no slippage, and the sound is gone.
