2001 3500 Dually
Just finished installing new DT550 for CPS, 6 speed conversion, deep pan. Talked to them yesterday to confirm, 17qts with the deep pan. Put 17 in it this morning, Doesn't move in any gear, well, a little in D. Thinking not enough fluid, dipstick still shows low. Just making sure is all as they're closed this weekend and I'd like to button this up this morning.

thanks

If the fluid is up to the low mark, you should be able to at least move your truck. If you are getting some movement it wouldn't hurt to add another 1/2 quart and see if something changes. You may end up removing some if you overfill, so take it easy - fill in small steps. The problem may not be in the fluid level.

Did you install the trans or them? Was the torque converter filled up before install? I would run the truck for a bit and keep topping off the trans fluid to make sure the TQ gets filled up as well. Dont try and mash it though just be gentle
