so i have a 1995 chevy Camaro z28 lt1 5.7L with a 4l60e attached to it. tranny went out, well i drove the clutch rings into the pan basically...... so i had a friend who sold me his 4l60e and upon receiving transmission i went ahead and check the sticker out which was like " 7CJD" found out its from a 97 chevy c-1500 5.7. So naturally i assumed it would work went ahead dropped my tranny took the tail housing off of my 95 4l60e and put it on the 97 went ahead got it bolted up and everything started the car threw it in gear then .............. absolutely nothing at all it, where did i go wrong or what didn't i do right can you offer some wisdom that can get me back on the road please.....

James,
I have a 1985 XJ6 Jaguar that I just installed a 1994 LT1/4l60e. I had another guy rebuild the trans and when I put everything together, I had a 1/2" gap between flex plate and converter, didn't know why. I used spacers (but not 1/2" worth, think I used .187 to bring the nose of the converter into the hole in the crank without loosing the pump connection) between crank flange and flex plate. If you bring the torque converter too far out of the trans, it will not engage the pump inside and that might be your problem.

I just read this article and will have to read it a couple more times, but basically you are trying to put a 1997 LS transmission behind an old style (Gen I and Gen II) engine and apparently the crank spacing and flex plate shape are different. If you get it sorted out would you let us know?
