Does it have an aftermarket short shifter? If so, it may have stops that need to be adjusted. The stops keep you from jamming in gear too hard and hurting the tranny. Not adjusted right and it won't be engaged properly.

And if it is a truly "new" tranny you better go easy until the clutch is broken in. Probably some time for the internals, but I'm not sure how long. At least 750 to 1000 before I'd go nuts, if it were me.
