Dry... so I added another 2qts, this time it jumped in r/d. Backed up and drove forward n shut it off. That's when I noticed the smoke coming from the dip stick tube. Could running it low be one of the problems?

since that trans and converter can hold 11 quarts of fluid, 6 quarts is not enough if the trans and converter were dry at a fresh rebuild
Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.
