Trans not engaging

I have a th350 that isn't engaging or moving the truck when I put it into gear. I replaced the engine and when I pulled the engine I also pulled the trans and when I did I didn't cap the end of the trans and that was a lesson learned. Anyways I filled the torque converter up before installing and  I have now dumped 10 quarts of trans fluid into it and its still not engaging and when I put it in park it grinds a little bit not real bad or loud but it shouldn't grind at all. Any ideas as what to do or what's wrong? Thank you

Are you 100% sure you got the torque convertor fully seated in the transmission before installing the transmission?

Is your shift linkage adjusted correctly?

Yes  I know I did cuz i drove it about 20 miles back to my house from the shop after I put the engine in I had to have it timed up. And they drove it around too. Then when I got it home I replaced the gasket and so on from what I said in earlier post.
