Since you say that you got it from a T-Bird specialist I'm assuming that they sent you the correct cruise-o-matic transmission for a 1961 that has the vacuum modulator. If the modulator is not hooked up to the vacuum line that will give you rough shifts. Also make sure you are starting in D1 and not D2.
