Hello,yes I put in a V8 350 engine and 350 Turbo.When I start the car it runs fine.When I put the car in ANY gear WITH MY FOOT OFF THE BRAKE the wheels turn in both directions (REVERSE-DRIVE).As soon as I hit the brake,it stalls.Ive been told that maybe the trans is damaged internally and Drive and Reverse gears are Locked at the same time causing the problem.How could the trans function in BOTH DRIVE and REVERSE if that was the problem?Ever seen this problem before?What do you think?Thanks
