If the unit worked before you parked it, likely you had a varnish buildup inside that was the result of lack of service or an overheat condition previous to parking it.(while sitting the varnish can harden up and cause internal solenoids and valves to become stuck) The only real way to remove the varnish would be to remove it and have it rebuilt. You could try something like changing the fluid and using an additive such as the one made by Lucas. I would also check any electrical harness plugs going to the transmission to make sure none have become corroded, as that too can affect the shift pattern, If changing the fluid works, change it again in 2,000 miles to remove anything that could block the filter.

rotate crankshaft in a clockwise direction until both timing marks are aligned together on both camshaft gears and the crankshaft timing mark aligns with mark on the block just behind the crankshaft gear. you may need to rotate the crankshaft gear several times before you can get all the timing marks to align. once you have done this then insert a allen wrench in the hole on the belt tensioner and a small drill bit or a small allen wrench in the smaller hole. take the largr allen wrench and apply pressure counterclockwise until the small drill bit or allen wrench slides into locking hole to hold the belt tensioner in place. install belt and release the tensioner. (note: before starting work on engine remove the negative cable from battery).
