Can't say what is wrong with your transmission, but I can tell you what was wrong with mine, with similar problems. Mine had hard gaskets, and the lining on the clutch plates was coming off. Also, when it was take apart, the man doing it was extremely experienced, and he found that an important spring wave washer was missing. He had to do some machine work to add another clutch to make up the difference for the missing part.
You have no idea who or how often someone had their hands in that transmission in the past, and if they left out an important part, that can cause you big time problems. My original problem was poor shifting from the day that I purchased the car. While the engine was out for rebuilding, I felt that it was also the time to do the transmission.
It is possible that the parts that you installed, might have gone bad from just sitting and exposed to the atmosphere. I don't know enough about the transmission to give you an honest opinion. I trusted mine to a fellow that builds transmissions for racing, so I felt that he was the perfect person for the job.
Never argue with an idiot. He'll drag you down to his level, then beat you with experience.
