2002 Cougar Trans. fault codes

Hi Gang, I just completed a 25k mile V6 motor swap in the car and is throwing me a few codes. I am using the original trans. with 140k on it, and the car was not drivable when I bought it so I took the chance. I have got Sea Foam trans. treatment in the car but have only driven a few miles. I've got Other issues to straighten out before I take it out for a good haul.
Definitely stuck in "limp mode", I assume 3rd gear as it takes a while to get going and won't upshift. Even force shifting with the lever does nothing.

Codes -
743; torque converter circuit - 750;shift Solenoid A malfunction -
755;Shift Solenoid B malfunction - 1747; Press. control solenoid A circuit shorted - 1744; TCC Solenoid Circuit Range

I would gather these are interrelated to the same replaceable sensor (I hope) but I am not a trans. guy. Any assistance you can send my way would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to Ford Forums Felix 001!

I would suggest that you check all of your electrical connections to the transmission. This sounds to me like one problem that is causing them all. Be sure that no pins were bent in any of the electrical connectors when you plugged them back in. Some dielectric grease wouldn't hurt either after giving them a shot of electrical contact cleaner.
