How many volts are you getting at the starter when you crank it?

Is the transmission manual or automatic?
Is the transmission the same as the original transmission?
Did it have any starting problems before you replaced the transmission?
Why was the starter replaced?
Did you check to make sure the new starter is exactly the same as the old starter? Same brand?
Did you replace the starter at the same time you replaced the transmission and it would not engage?
Is the starter gear stuck on the flywheel?
Has the new starter been removed and tested?
