auto transmission problems

alright fellas, i just picked up a sweet half way done project/headache. its a 95 yj with a SBC swap, they also did me a favor and tossed a turbo 400 in it. along with a sweet three inch body lift now to the issue, i was down grading my 3 in BL to a 1 inch cause there was tons of clearance that was not needed. the aftermarket radiator needed to get reworked for clearance issues with the steering box. when i took the tranny lines off there was no tranny fluid in the radiator not a drop. so my question is. what could cause this problem? its shifting fine and if i wouldnt have taken the lines off i would have never known anything was wrong with it... is there some sort of check valve or something that would stop fluid flow? i have searched the web high and low. i know this is a popular swap so maybe someone knows whats up... any ideas would be great.

X2 to Anti. I've replaced radiators on auto trans cars that I've only gotten a few drops of trans fluid or none at all. Others have bled like a stuck pig. If everything works/runs/shifts fine, check the fluid and continue on as usual. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

take one line off and start it and put in N and see if fluid comes out?
