I don't know if I cut a seal lip or if it is a valve body problem. I'm having someone else look at it since I'm tired of pulling it. It was my first attempt at an automatic. ( I build semi truck gear boxes for a living)

Been busy today. I pulled the hub off, removed the studs that hold the spindles on. I countersunk the bolts on the spindles so I could flip the front hubs. Also installed new studs in the hubs. Put new knuckle boots on and debraked the rear axle.

this is what I started with

Yea I finally fixed the trans. The guy I let look at it just pressure tested the clutch packs and shimmed it to get the clearances a little tighter. Put it in and still no reverse. So I pulled the valve body and found a torn gasket. Installed a different brand shift kit and everything now works.

I was pleased with how everything worked on the first time out. Had no problems except a clip broke on the metal fuel line and it got too close to the header and vapor locked. Two zip-ties later it was fixed.
