Default Pre-install Traansmisison Test

I picked-up a "worked when pulled" BW-55 transmission and replaced all of the exterior seals and gaskets.

Is there a way to test the transmission before installation or is this a swap and "hope for the best" moment?

Unfortunately there is no way to test a transmission other than full sending it
