Welcome, I am Chris (aka-Moose)

Lets check the shift linkage and the differential and axle shafts. Seems simple but make sure it will not roll in park but will roll in any other gear. If thats fine then we need to move onto pressure testing to check the forward and reverse clutch pressure since it will not move in D or R. Have you or can you do that?

Thanks Chris. Everything is hooked up correctly. I have a feeling it may be the pressure but Im not sure how to check it.

You would need to air test both clutches using air place of the fluid at the removed valve body to check for leaks.

As I mentioned in my original post, I was going to keep checking in with you till you got your moneys worth.

It appears we are not there yet because the post has not been rated yet.

Can you let me know why you have not rated, so I can help more as well learn from this interaction.

If you still need help, PLEASE reply so we can get this concern wrapped up.

Chris
