Icon3 3.0 cranks but wont start without starting fluid.

Hello, I have a 3.0 ford ranger and it ran and started great when I bought it but had no reverse. I just got through a tranny swap and new oil pan, but now it won't start without starting fluid but once started stays running. Any help would be appreciated.This is my first time on the forum so I hope I'm posting in the right place.

Quick question for you Kobin, how far away are your tranny lines from your cat, I flared new ones because mine broke into many pieces and they ended up only a 1/ 4 away from it to close I think. Proably will make new ones again but am just curios of the distance.
