In reading the post, I don't see any reference to the throttle valve cable or adjustment. You need to be SURE you have the correct geometry on the carb linkage and the cable set properly or you'll burn out your new transmission in less than 10 miles. There are tons of articles on the net about setting this and multiple vendors for the linkage adapter. The proper travel is set with the engine OFF so if its not running yet, that's OK. Just DO NOT try to change shift points by 'adjusting' this cable, that's NOT what its for.
