If you followed the manual like you should have, it should work. I did my rebuild in my own garage, and...modified....quite a bit. That was almost a year ago, and it still works....well, would work if the engine would cooperate. Let me give you a piece of advice or two. Start it up while on jackstands, wheels removed, foot on brake. Shift into FIRST, and watch for the wheel spin. No need to give it any gas...it should spin freeely on its own. Now, go off-idle (maybe 1k), and move to 2nd...it should shift. Third and fourth should come on in the same manor. Brake it, reverse gear....should follow suite. Park, shut it off...drain fluid to flush out rebuild debris and tranny lube, and refill it.
WAY off topic....but that'* all I will say on the subject!
