after transmission install all gears neutral?

I put in a new transmission and transfer case, after putting all the fluids in I started it up and none of the gears engage (feels like in neutral) Also, I swapped the electric plug on the TC for the vacuum plug and its not reading when I engage 4wd also. I tried the TC in all positions to make sure it wasn't in neutral
please help I was finally hoping to have this damn thing running again!
Thanks

I'd check the T-case linkages, The vacuum switch shouldn't affect the neutral for the rear axle. Also, was it the right tranny to t-case input shaft?

Im not sure what you mean tranny to t-case input shaft? It was all connected and in use before i got it from another jeep. I actually put a new clutch plate on the damn thing and I have the rear drive shaft connected. I re bled the clutch this morning in hopes for some reason that would be the problem to no avail. Im not sure what im missing here but it is driving me nuts!

im thinking maybe the clutch plate I put in may not of been the right one

this is what I put in
Omix-Ada 16903.01 Junior Clutch Kit : Amazon.com : Automotive

the plate looked a little different than the stock one and I re used the stock pressure plate

If it was a hydraulic issue then putting it in gear with the engine off the vehicle,it would move.
Even if the pressure plate was in backwards it would do something.
So my guess is the shifter is not installed correctly or maybe a issue with the shift rail inside. How do you know it worked before you bought it.

It was put in correctly it said "this side toward flywheel" on it

I can feel the shifter clicking through the gears
The guy I bought it from is a friend doing a swap so I know it was good.
I did put it in gear and it would roll easily

PRESSURE PLATES cannot be put in backwards, so IGNORE that line of reasoning.....

It IS possible however for your pressure plate not to have lined up correctly with your throw out bearing and perpetually "pushing in" on the clutch OR to have put old AND new T/O bearing in by accident which ALSO will emulate pushing on clutch.

Also, you do not mention if it is internal slave or external slave...... if EXTERNAL slave, you could have arm on incorrect side of T/O bearing causing it to actuate all of the time. If internal slave.... could be faulty and extended causing pressure plate pressing.

Have someone press in clutch while you look in bell housing and/or listen carefully to see/hear if pressure plate is actually moving. This noise is VERY noticeable with the vehicle NOT running.

If all things were NOT aligned correctly (assuming you used alignment tool here) pressure plate can be locked up and not forcing clutch plate into the flywheel.

Also, the thickness of your NEW clutch versus the OLD clutch added to the possible wear of your old flywheel and old pressure plate could add up to maximum slippage/non contact.

thanks bc3 ill check into all of this
It is an internal slave, I did use the alignment tool, I think i may have made a mistake installing the clutch plate and reusing the pressure plate. (amazon forgot to ship the pressure plate so i just installed the the new clutch plate with the old pressure plate) I am actually ordering the replacement now

nothing ever goes smoothly for me the 1st time lol

Will do, as soon as the govt pays me I can get started again, I figure I might as well replace the internal slave since I have to pull the trans again! Im really hoping that its just clutch slippage
