1996 E4OD help!

I have a 1996 ford f-350 with 7.3 powerstroke with the edge power programmer.. Well this all started when I was pulling a load and the rear main seal went out. Before this the truck would bogg down and stall when the truck was put into gear like the TC was staying locked up..Anyways I took tranny out and replaced wit a hughes TC and new rear main. Put it back in changed the fluid and filter. Well it solved the bogging and stalling part, but now whn I put it into drive its not dropping into 1st. It is going into 3rd. Anyways I drove it down the road thinking I need to get all the fluid circulating. Anyways kept doing the same thing, pulled into the drive dropped it down into 1st and it was fine. Kept running it through the gears and I thought it was fine. Shut her down for about 2 hours. Came back and started her up and wont go into 1st when in drive, staying into 3rd...But if I manualy drop it into 1st or 2nd it seems like it is fine like it has the power it should....So thats where this story ends. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

No I wouldn't think so. Sounds like a tc problem.

Pull the pan and take the valve body off and clean all the ports in it #2 it could be that one of the shift pack solenoids is bad....Did it use to just try and lock the TC when you put it in drive or did it also do it when you would put it in reverse....,,Usually from what I've read and been told when your TC starts locking up like that the tranny pump is starting to wear out,,but you'll notice it when you put it in reverse before you put it in drive. If its only doing it when you put it in drive it more than likely is the shift pack solenoids causing the problems.

With the stalling and bogging issue it would do it in any gear..I replaced the tc with a nice aftermarket one and it fixed the problem. When I took the stock tc out, if I shook it around I could hear rattling inside the tc so I figured the tc was toast.
