Will the starter turn the engine over and it won't fire or is the starter dead? If starter dead, the connector for the neutral safety switch is most likely open. You can jump it with a wire and connectors but you really need to wire it to a clutch switch to prevent in gear accidental start ups. Good Luck!

If all you did was a tranny change I would have to agree with mike.
