I drained the transmission so I could use 50wt. oil hoping I could get a few more miles out of the tired tranny.  I noticed the level in the tank never changed even though I got nearly as much oil out as the book says it holds.  So I couldn't get the level to go down even when I did the procedure called out to fill the tranny up.  Is there a step I've overlooked?  I tried using the purge lever (Manual move lever) to no avail.  So now it wont move at all as it has no oil internally.  :)
