You broke a bunch of stuff, or they did?

Sounds like a prob in the forward clutch .There are 2 different size(width) sealing rings on the stator support for the fwd clutch,wrong ones maybe..
Remove the valvebody and do some air testing might show up the problem.
Keep us posted on your findings...

I had the same problem with my rebuild. When I looked to see what was going on, the oil smelled burned. Looked further and the clutch pack appeared burned (black). The bearing race showed heat discoloration as well. Maybe you will find the same thing if you open yours up again. Maybe this can help someone pinpoint problem further.
