Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
There are quite a few things that will cause a loss of reverse. If it does have all forward gears then you can rule out a clutch issue, which would leave a band related issue. The low/reverse band may not be adjusted correctly, there may be a servo issue, and I've seen striped spline between the rear annulus and overrunning clutch drum.
All forward gears work?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
which drum
Transmission Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago
We're discussing the rear clutch but the same applies for either.
Ask Your Own Transmissions Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
just checked and they are in right
Transmission Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago
Pull the pistons back out to make sure the seals are in place and undamaged but I think you've at least transposed the discs between the front and rear clutches. They're different thicknesses, your front clearance is too large and rear is too small, which will happen if you put the discs in the wrong clutch.
