5R110 issues/ with new trans installed

OK so i will try to be as accurate as i can. So for a while now the 5R110 in my 03 F350 has been acting weird. In the mornings or after it has been parked for a little bit the truck had a pretty good delay when i went from PARK to REVERSE and into DRIVE. Basicly any time i moved the colum from one position to another there would be a 3-5 sec delay and then a clunk and then the truck would go forward or backward depending on gear. On top of this issue sometimes after the CLUNK it would slip out of gear for a second and then back into gear and then be fine for the remainder of the drive. once i parked the truck for a while the whole process would start over.

Fast forward a few months. I went and picked up a new toy. A porsche 944. i put it on a car hauler and towed it with my F350. as i was coming home the trans just slipped out of gear and i hand no forward or reverse gears. NOTHIGN... so after checking fluid levels and electronic connectors i called AAA and had the truck and trailer towed home.

When i got home i wanted to trouble shoot more. so i fired up the truck and put it in drive. The trans engaged and off i went. i drove up and down the block a few times and was putting a pretty good load on it to see if it would slip. it worked normal. no slips, no sounds, seemed fine. after about 3 passes up and down the block the trans came out of gear again and no forward or reverse.

So i make an appointment with the dealer to check it out. I grab my 77FJ40 and i put the wife in my superduty. I told her to drive it as far as it will go and i will tow it with the FJ if it dont make it. (dealer is only 2 miles from my house) so she starts it up and it drives ok for a bout a mile. then complete fail happens again. No forward no reverse. So i hook up the FJ and tow it to the dealer.

the dealer had it for a few days and said the trans is toast. They didnt even charge me to inspect it cause they said it was obvious. so after they quoted me 5k to do the repair i went and grabbed my truck.

I ordered a full built trans from the guys in bakersfield. (with all the goodies)
and i had a trans shop do the remove and replace.

Now I have only driven the truck a few miles since the trans has been replaced but the delay and clunk is still there and the truck has stalled going from park to reverse a few times.

Does the trans have to relearn how to do its job? i drove the truck from the trans shop to the paint shop. right now it is gettin new paint so i have not been able to troubleshoot the trans issues in depth.

I just wanted to see what you guys thought about what is going on.

I had the rear end inspected at the trans shop they inspeceted and changed oil in the rear end. When the new trans was put in i used the expensive *** Ford fluid.

Let me know.

There could be a simple answer to this. But, for one, did your new transmission come with a new valve body and solenoids? Or did you have to swap over your original valve body into the new one?
