300td transmission

I need some help I just finished an engine swap and drove the car ( lessthan quarter mile). The car shifted sluggishly but smooth I parked the car to check for vaccum leak and poor idle . Found a fuel leak at 2 injectors and one balance line repaired ,idled smoothed out. Tranny fluid a pint low added fluid and connected a detacted vaccum line(green) Went to take for another drive, car would not go into gear. I can move selector and see it move the rod on the transmission. Is tranny bad? or have I connected something wrong .

Thankyou pat

I had a similar problem when I did a swap in a 560 SEL I had connected the gear shift wrong with the gears in the tranny. I had the tranny in neutral and attached it while the shifter was in park. The car ran but not like it should of it was an easy fix pu the tranny in reverse --look for back up lights then put shifter in reverse and attach. hope that helps
