Now, it's an 88tc auto, new flywheel, rebuilt stater,almost stock everything else. Please gime what you all have stored up in those heads of yours, I know someone has an answer for me that will fix this.

Wild guess: Torque converter not seated in the tranny properly (tangs not engaging the pump correctly).
