Are you using the same torque converter or a different one.

Some of these are thermostatic oil flows to the external lines -- or so my manual says for the thing somewhere. I don't think mine is though.

What are your reusing overall from the old transmission? Modulator, or whatever.

Is the selector lever actually moving when you move the shift lever?

No idea, Jose. If the vacuum line is hooked up and the selector is moving we're running out of options.

Are any of the other trannies maybe missing the small input shaft? There are two concentric splined shafts coming out of the bellhousing when the torque converter is out. A large one which doesn't move, and a small one which does. Is the small one there? If not, then the torque converter isn't passing any power to the oil pump and tranny innards.
