You put the overdrive unit on wrong or the one use put on is seized internally which isn't a surprise. And don't push it off a cliff, push is towards me, I could use another truck.

Oh and make sure the speedo is connected, if the vehicle doesn't receive a signal then the vehicle won't start or it will have idle problems, certain years allowed you to start without the speedo and others were tight about it.

you're going to want to have both connected meaning the one in the od unit and the one in the transfer case. it doesn't have to be installed just connected.
