87 trans aod stalls engine in drive please help

Hey guys I'm new here and just got my second mustang. 1987 LX 5.0 auto aod trans. Bought it a week ago with the trans out of the car. Guy said it would die in all gears. So talking with some tranny shop advise was put a new converter in it. So I bought a new converter and installed the trans today. New fluid and filter. On jacks I try starting it in park and dies. Start it in neutral and it runs but idle is rough but wheels spin. Put it in park, drive, or reverse and tires spin and dies when brakes applied. Not sure if its in the tranny gears or valve body. Please help. Thanks in advance.

Would that just help the idle or does it also effect the transmission issue as well?

Idle, but if your car won't idle in gear it could be that, plus these cars are really old and things get dirty

Cleaned the iac and still have problem. I even disconnected it and no change. I'm pretty sure it's in the transmission just have to figure out what part of the tranny. Still open to suggestions.

Could still be the iac... I pretty sure there is a diaphram in there that plugs the hole in the intake. Maybe pull the cover off and stick your finger in the hole while its running to double check

When I had it off the little plunger inside would move back and forth pretty easily. Is that right?

Ok, I wonder if the tv cable is way out of adjustment? Does that control the pressure in the transmission ? Maybe keeping it always engaged when its started and pressures are to high...
