Well, if you put 3 gallons of fluid in it, that's 12 quarts, and it's probably overfilled and foaming. They take 9-10 quarts after a rebuild.

Welcome to Allpar. Foamy ATF would show up on the dipstick. It could also cause pump whine similar to low power steering noises. It may be able to creep forwards and backwards.
Do you have flow through the cooler lines in neutral?
Check for line pressure at the accumulator port. If you back out the accumulator tap plug, ATF under pressure should push past the threads. You want about 50-100 psi here idle in Neutral (set the parking brake and chock the wheels).
