Turbo 350 Doesn't Shift In Drive (must manual)

When I'm sitting still.
My transmission doesn't downshift at all w/ the selector in drive. I have to manually shift the transmission. When I manually shift 1-2 there is a hesitation then a firm shift. Non of the gears slip after the shift.

History -
I bought the transmission re-built from a transmission shop. It has had these symptoms from day one.

I put a B&M trans kit in it, hoping that it would resolve the issue. Didn't help, but the shifts are firmer now. When I put the kit in the transmission I examined the pan and there was not any plate or clutch material in the pan.

This transmission has less than 50 miles on it since I got it from him. But we moved so I can't take it back to get it repaired.

Any Ideas?
Thanks ahead of time.
Sorry if this is a repeat, I looked but didn't any similar posts
