In closing up the job from my LSD install, I exercised the shift lever and found I could not shift into 5th. At this point, I haven’t filled the transmission fluid, and the engine has not turned yet. Is this a lubrication issue that will sort itself once the car runs?

If nothing is moving it may not go into every gear.
If its installed you could roll/rock the car a bit to move the diff. Or press the clutch a few times might move the input shaft enough

Or if uninstalled, try spinning input shaft/output flanges and see if all gears engage.......?

Already installed and engine dropped back in. Transmission feels like it's going into every other gear fine. I thought about removing the plunger to see if anything was funky before it was inserted. I hope to not have to de-mate the transmission again.
