Post 700r4 problems

i recently went from a powerglide to a 700r4 in my chevelle, but for some reason i am not getting the car to move yet. i have added a about 4 qts including one to the converter, but the level reads full, and the car won't budge. it was suggested that my pump might be bad or there is clog somewhere. so i checked and found that there was no fluid making its way to the cooler when the engine is running. any ideas would help greatly

Where did the trans originate from (bought it used, rebuilt, etc).
Are you checking the fluid with the engine running?
4 quarts is no where near enough for a rebuilt trans when it's first started.
How long are you letting it run?
Do you have the right converter installed as far as spline count (although this won't cause no fluid to the cooler).
