Did you fill the TC with fluid before installation ?

My first guess is the converter is not seated all the way into the trans.

If he did that, he wouldn't have been able to bolt up to the engine.

I've seen many damaged transmissions that were bolted up fully and the converter not fully seated.. then the engine is started and the problems begin.

Possible to either "crash" the pump by not getting converter into pump all the way. Or, there is 27 and 30 spline count input shafts on the 700. Could have wrong converter?

I've done it.

Not fun.

Although, it did make a nice noise as the notches in the converter bounced off the drive lugs on the oil pump gear.

Another shot, was the shift cable disconnected at the trans during the TC swap ?

(Maybe the parts guy's slipped him a 5000 stall converter). Shift linkage, TC bolt's, or fluid level. What else could it be? Why did you replace the TC? Perhaps the tranny had a problem in the first place and not the TC.
Anyway , you need to fill the fluid to the proper level, start the engine, and shift it back and forth from reverse and drive a few times, then re-check the fluid level. You might have to do this a few times until the TC get's filled up.
They used to put drain plugs on TC's so I'm guessing that filling it up before install might not be imperative to the operation of R&R the TC.

X2. I've experienced that one, not on a 700 but on a C4. The new converter from the rebuilder looked identical on the outside, but the input shaft wouldn't engage the splines in the TC.
It wasn't the rebuild guy, it was the delivery guy who mixed up the boxes, and no one checked the part # against the invoice.

wow guys thanks.

alot of replys in just a couple days..I didnt fill the TC before installing however it is a used TC and had enough fluid to spill out when I picked it up vertical.. I belive the stall is lower on this one because it has a "6" stamped on it and not a "7" like the original. The TV cable was disconected when I replaced the TC it seems to be attached still at the trans. You guys are good.. I was keep this a secret to see if anyone would hit on it. The TC was not fully seated the first time I bolted the Trans to the engine...Just as the transmission touched the engine I heard a loud "POP" im afraid to see what it would be I hope its not the TC i have a spare pump but no more TCs....also I replaced the TC because I had a bad leak everything worked fine before...now the leak is fixed but the trans doesnt work. Once agian thanks guys.
