Transmission problems with new install

I needed to replace the transmission on my '03 Deville. The new tranny is all bolted up and filled with fluid to the middle of the cold mark. But when I started the car and shifted through all the gears I'm still got getting anything out of the transmission. I pulled the cooler lines to see if any fluid was pumping, but I'm not getting anything comming out of the lines.

I'm about to pull all my hair out. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I could have done wrong or what to check next? And yes I did put the torque converter bolts in.

I got a used trans last fall. Came with conv which fell out when I was putting trans on trans jack. Yes, I did see the small, hex shaft inside the splined extension. I even checked my old trans for the same part. The OP did a swap just like I did. I assume he got a different conv? Did he remove conv to see if hex shaft was there?
Dayum. Does that bite or what? And yes u do have to remove trans to pull off converter. Only thing u don't have to do is take trans off of jack. Big whoop.
