If it won't pump fluid at all, you have a serious internal problem.

No, it isn't going to be that simple. You could have broken the front pump installing it, you could have a broken torque converter or other internal issues but there is nothing external that can prevent it from having any oil pressure.

Just thoughts: Who did this swap, you or with a shop or what?

Fluid and filter change might not be at right level or filter can't pick up any fluid to pump. Does level change with engine running vs engine off? Dunno without looking and could have smashed up pump and more as HT already said,

Vacuum lines to the trans went the way of the dodo in 1993. How exactly did you decide it has no flow from the pump? Does it not push any fluid through the cooler? Have you ruled out a bad cooler? Have you pulled the pan on this trans to make sure the filter didn't break its plastic suction line when the truck crashed?
