Car drives fine, tends to shift up early but cable adjustment on throttle to gearbox has little effect. Pressing overdrive button shows up on dash but simply wont go into overdrive, oil level ok and fully warmed up. any ideas?

check that you have connected correctly the cables for the torque converter solenoid / servo unit as it may not be making good contact after the engine change . Also as the battery was disconnected for a time I would use a scanner to reset the CPU program as the program may be corrupted from the lost battery power.
There a tab at the linkage you unlock it and slid the cable till it is just a little loose the snap the tab back in, drive the car and make a note when the car shifts into overdrive, it should do it at about 55 miles per hour at half throttle, if it shifts to fast tighten the cable if it stays out of overdrive loosen it
Sounds like the direct clutch is bad. But first make sure the transmission control cable is still attached to the throttle body. If it isn't replace the bushing that holds it on, they tend to break. If it is hooked up the transmission will need rebuilt.
Grinds as in slowly creeps? or grinds as in metal noise?
Not shifting into overdrive,could be the kick down bands need adjusted.Or the kick down cable.
The cable is on the Throttle body side and should be lined up perfectly with the lug it goes on. Make sure you are not pulling on the cable or you will get a false indication of where it is. It has to be lined up with in a 32nd of an inch.. This is the baseline of where it would be in stock form. If you have it set like this and it wont shift until you let of it a little bit, then you need to loosen the cable a little bit. If you loosen it too much, you will have other problems..such as shifting too soon/late. It takes a while to get it how you want it. Start with making bold adjustments, you wont hurt anything, and see what it does. After you have a grasp as to what it doesn when you move the cable in either direction, make smaller adjustments..
You dont need a "tranny guy" to do this for you. If you dont know how to adjust the cable let me know and I or someone else on here will let you know how to do it, its.
you could need a throttle linkage adjustment. first check to see if your ram will start in "park" and "neutral" only. if it starts in any other gear=faulty neutral safety switch. replace. ok, now check linkage for proper adjustment...with engine off and in park...remove intake housing..disconnect cableend from attatchment stud on your throttle body..slide cable off the stud (carefully)..verify that the transmissionthrottle lever is fully forward (idle) position..and verify that the lever on the throttle body is at curb idle pos..insert small screwdriver under edge of the retaining clip and remove..center the cable end on attatchment stud to within 0.04", or 1mm. install retaining clip onto cable housing..check cable adjustment..be sure trans throttle lever and throttlr body lever move in sync with each other.
