Unable to see layer after changing projection

My CAD person prepared a DGN file, which I converted into a geodatabase.  From there, I exported the points, polygons, and lines  to a shapefile.  The coordinate system is WGS_1984_World_Mercator Meters.  I need to get these files into Zone 901 Datum NAD83 HARN.   I am assuming that the HARN they want is in feet, but I'm really not sure.  So I'm doing it in feet anyway.  I am using the Project tool in Arc Toolbox, but I get an error message saying "invalid extent for output coordinate system".

I should add that I also tried setting my workspace to HARN feet, bringing the geodatabase in and doing an export to a shapefile choosing 'use data frame coordinate sytem', and it shows it works, then if I do zoom to layer, I can't see anything.

Any ideas??
