perhaps you missed the part of my post about the powerglide has a smaller input shaft and is a coarse spline.

the vehicle does not move because the drive hub of the turbine inside the t-400 torque converter is at best waving at the small input shaft of the powerglide.

IF your powerglide had been converted to a 'turbo spline' input shaft ... then the t-400 converter turbine hub would be transfering power to the power glide transmission.

Pull the powerglide transmission out.. look at the input shaft of the powerglide.......then install the correct torque converter for the P-Glide transmission application.

Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
