Trans Spins One Direction in Neutral

I just got my 700R4 built to the hilt by a local shop. It took me 3 months to get it back in the car. Tonight I'm installing the drive shaft and noticed that it will only spin in one direction with the trans in neutral. The transmission is dry except for a half quart in the converter. I'm starting to panic. What do you all think could be wrong?

Never mind. I got it to turn with a pry bar. It was tough, but it'll move. It must just be a little tight from the fresh rebuild. Whew. The heart attack is going away now.

Ha, that poor guy was in the same situation as me. Now I know that it takes a little more muscle to turn it clockwise. Weird. You just gotta learn this stuff the hard way. thanks.
