Shifting..

Got a donor car from the local buddy that has the wrecking yard, gravel pit operation. the trans was clean and painted but didn't work,,, pulled the pan and the nut was loose on the shifter mechanism ,,, easy fix.

How many quarts of fluid were installed?
You're right. I should have added the part about trans being low on fluid. If you don't fill the converter the pump will fill the converter which will result in the trans being so low that nothing will happen... If there wasn't enough fluid in the trans to begin with. My bad.

Centerline Did you pre-fill the torque converter before you installed it??? If you don't do this that's exactly what will happen.

Is the torque converter fully engaging the front pump?

What is the fluid level?

Low level= No go.

prostreet6t9 After you tightened the bell bolt's could you still spin the converter? First thing I would do is a pressure test to make to have pressure.If the converter was bound up, it might have broke the pump gears.
