I took the motor out to have some machine work done. The Trans was running fine before taking out the old motor with all gears and T-Brake from Frank. Installed the motor and transmission but, it did not go into 1st, 2nd, 3rd checked the fluid and linkage I did have reverse. The fluid was good. I did manage to get it into 1st but pressure builds and loses pressure when I give it gas and the RPM rises but the car rolls then stays still . Maybe I am missing something..

If he has reverse the pump is good. Let the engine run long enough where the trans is allowed to warm up a bit see how the FWD engagement is. I'd suspect the inner seal for the FWD clutch piston. My experience with this seal is it can be a long decline that progressively gets worse or all of a sudden one day it no longer wants to seal until warm. I used to drive my 78 F-100 in reverse out of the neighborhood. Then it'd drive o-k forward to get on the main road. Otherwise I'd sit for 5-10 minutes waiting for it to engage FWD.

Best next step?-------drop the pan. If it's full of metal you may have crammed the convertor or have another issue and it needs to come out. If it's clean/normal then drop the V-B and do some air checks with air pressure regulated down to 30-40 psi to check the FWD clutch circuit.
