Are both connectors on the distributor plugged in and in good shape? I've seen them get damaged if the motor rocks back too far. Make sure no wires are pinched in the bellhousing. Getting access to a code reader should help narrow it down a bit.

I didn't think about pinched wires between bellhouse but crank shaft sensor is plunger in, I don't know if I will be able to get a hold of a scanner to grab any codes but it makes me mad bc all I did was swap transmission, but I will look to see if I have wires pinched, an try an find scanner thanks for the tip
