No Movement

hey guys i just rebuilt my Th350 because i had to replace the pump gears i broke them when putting the converter in wrong so i just rebuilt the whole trans while i had it out. But when i finished all that i got it back in the car and this time i had the converter in place in the trans before i put it to the motor so it didnt go on wrong. But when i finished installing it and hooking everything up and filling it with fluid i started it and ran through the gears and it didnt do anything (same symptoms it was giving with the broken pump gears) so i took the coolant lines off and it wasnt pumping anything but i know this time i couldnt have broken the gears the converter was in right and never made the pop noise when you break the gears cause i heard it the first time i did it. So i got under the car and unbolted the converter from the flexplate and i could push it 1/4 inch more into the pump. So my question is, is it just not fully engaging the pump and why would there be that 1/4 inch of space between it and the flexplate or should it be able to have that space when unbolted from the flexplate? thanks for any replies

There should be a little play there....1/4 in is not excessive. Something else is amiss.....................

Did you put any trans fluid in the converter before you installed it? The pump fills the converter first and its possible you don't have enough trans fluid in it to move. Happened to me once a long time ago - lesson learned the hard way.

Check your fluid level and add more if you need to. If it's full now then you have a more serious problem.
