Swapped out T45 help!!

I just swapped out a t45 trans because my reverse was completely shot. I fired it up and now its making a grinding sound while idling.
Does the cable need to be adjusted or does it need time for the fluid to circulate? This is the first manual I have replaced. I also never removed the clutch when installing it. It was installed in 09 and has less than 4k miles on it.

The transmission is used.....but has only 76k miles on it.

Thanks

that is typically the throwout bearing that makes that noise at idle...if you are lucky that is all it is.

I had one that was going out in my 95 GT. I am kinda familiar with that sound. This is more like clutch disc dragging or transmission internals making noise. I have not let the vehicle down off the ramps yet.

I put 3 quarts of dex III fluid in the trans. I also did NOT adjust the clutch cable when I installed the trans. It appears to have an aftermarket cable, it is similar to the BBK on summitracing.com
I did not see a quadrant by the pedal inside the vehicle. There is only a plastic adjuster outside the firewall.

Any suggestions?

It looks a lot like this

BBK Performance 3519 - BBK Adjustable Clutch Cables - Overview - SummitRacing.com

Has anyone ever adjusted one of these?

Also is there a way to upload sounds on here....I will record it while its doing it.

Ok good news......clutch cable was bound up. I was able to loosen it and free it and pull the slack out. Works great now.

One more quick question.......I just did a PI swap swap as well. I removed the power steering unit and it appears that the fluid from the reservoir is not entering the unit. After installing it I just added fluid to the line.....am I missing something?

Try turning the wheel all the way to each side a few times and see if it needs more fluid. If it's easy to turn the power steering is working, if its hard as bubba when richard simmons goes to jail the power steering isn't working, check all the lines, and make sure you have everything attached right. For future ref don't remove the pump and reservoir, just move them aside.
