73 nova 700r4 problem?

im in the process of restoring my nova. it has a new motor (350 bored .60 over) and a 700r4 that just came out of the shop. the engine strains when i put it in gear...like it wants to die. sometimes it will. now im pretty sure its not the tranny... because the th350 that was in there a week ago did the same thing. its possible the motor isn't tuned all the way it could probably use some more advancing. but even so why should the engine be strained by me just putting it in gear? the stall is somewhere around the 2000-2500 range. everything in the drivetrain is new and the engine pulls 13'' vaccuum.
