Unable to select gears on FMX box

Just completed installing motor and g/box in car after new paint job. I am unable to select any gears. Is there a special method to bleed g/box oil as torque converter was also drained. Linkage all connected ok. I suspect something on the inside maybe wrong. What should I look out for? Any help / info is greatly appreciated!

Re: Unable to select gears on FMX box

Did you fill converter before you refitted? put all but 1 to 1.5 lts of recomended oil in box and top up while motor is running
