So I pulled my th400 last season to change my setup. It was shifting fine and only had 3 passes on it. Now after putting it back in, it won't go into park. I did put in a different converter, flexplate, and a new trans pan. Any ideas?

It's in a 4th gen f body, 6 liter iron LS1.

What kind of a shifter do you have? If it's a B&M I think some times the ratchet shifters require two clicks to get from reverse to park. Make sure the cable is adjusted right so that it can fully engage into park. That's all I got.

hmm. Well is the pan deeper and aftermarket? The linkage may not be clearing something on the pan.

What about the neutral/park safety switch? Could it be locking you out like an auto does if you shut it off in a gear that's not in park? Like when you have to start it in neutral then you have free reign of the gears.

Don't have a safety switch yet. We'll pull the pan and see if anything isn't clearing.

I'm sure he will if he can't figure out the problem, probably nothing to hard and Angelo isn't exactly just across the street.

P.S. Issac, You owe me money Damnit!! The way I see it with all the compounding interest you owe me 10 bucks bitch

Well I figured it out. The new pan wasn't letting the shifter linkage inside the trans go to park. I clearanced it and it works fine now. You would think a company like B&M would know how to make th400 pans better than this.
