Re: C4 Transmission Installation Problem
Your converter is not fully seated. If you are lucky you will not have broken the front pump by forcing things together. You can remove the trans, seat the converter correctly and re-install. There should be 1 ~ 1 1/8" between the face fo the bell and the mounting ears of the converter and when installed the converter should have 1/16 or so of clearance with the flexplate - enough to wiggle the converter studs, bolts, whatever.
>the tranny moves threw the gears and out put shaft responds.
Jamming the converter has zero effect on non-power gear selection. The only thing an auto shifter does is move the manual valve in the valve body. The output shaft is not tied to the input shaft unless the engine is running, the pump is producing pressure and the trans is in drive or reverse. If you have it REALLY jammed up, then you can lock the output to the input but you've likely broken something else at that point.
