So tackled it again this weekend. Gas, you were right, the torque converter was not properly aligned with the pump. It had fallen out of its proper position during the install.
Now for part II.
Got the new trans fully installed, hooked up the linkages, the electrical connectors and the drive lines. Filled it with fluid till the dip stick read full on cold. Trans and Tcase both shift. However the truck cannot move under its own power. It will start and run, park will hold the truck in position and neutral will allow the truck to be pushed. But all drive gears and reverse do not work. Tried this in 2wd, 4x4 and 4low. The truck doesn't even 'kick' like the trans shifted.
Pulled the torque converter access plate and the torque converter drain plug to confirm there was fluid in the torque converter and there was. The torque converter was reused from the previous tranny since it was recently rebuilt (5 yrs ago) and worked when removed from the truck.
So, did I just get ripped off and get a bad tranny? Or am I missing something? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
