No gears at all, but shifter works?

Its starts but doesnt go? A friend of mine told me it might be my fransmission pump.

You didn't get the torque converter slid all the way back when installed. It should go back 3 times as you turn it in the bell housing. When you started it the front pump sheared off inside and probably damaged the torque converter too. It will need a transmission now.
