Default transmission make the engine stall

Why does a 1973 727 transmission make the engine stall when placed in drive or reverse?

It sounds like the converter is locked up. Is it a newly installed, or rebuilt converter?

Sounds like a possible vacuum leak as well. As the car begins to decease in idle, if there is a vacuum leak it will stall. Load on engine.
