Isn't as simple as asking us the question and we'll have a definitive answer. Your going to need to check all of your electrical connections and grounds. You might have missed something in the swap. So your saying it cranks but doesn't turn over or you got nothing?

Tom is right! I would certainly check all battery and possible starter problems -- I'm assuming if you were able to swap motors you are checking that stuff over again. Also you need to know if the motor moves at all. Can you turn the motor by hand? Meaning-- can you put a socket on the crank bolt and spin the motor? If not then you have a mechanical and not electrical issue. One common mistake (which I have done!) is not to get the torque Convertor pressed completely in and it binds up the flexplate so your starter cant turn the motor -- so post some more details and we ll see if we can help!!
