Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner past midnight.

It is going to be hard to diagnose what parts you need without the trans apart to see all that is damaged. Since your going to overhaul it you will for sure need a seal kit. There are different levels of this kit, that can contain more like the friction and steel plates for all the clutches. Below is a diagram.

part 138 servo and 63 band are the more likely failures for a pop then no reverse.

This is my 1st answer of what can be many. You the website and myself expect you to have a ~~~5 STAR EXCELLENT~~~ experience with my help. At the top of your screen is the rating box that you only get to use once. Please make sure to complete the mandatory rating when ready or reply and say "I am pleased with my answer". Not rating or rating 1-2 stars does not benefit you nor me in any way.

Thanks Moose.

Hello again Chris here,

  • Sorry you were not pleased with my help.
  • What would you like to do regarding your question now.
  • This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. When a post times out, that means it's no longer on my active list (you reply and I may never know it.)

Thanks Chris
