tranny

I have a th350 that i just rebuilt. When I put the tranny in drive I have to hold the shifter down to keep it in gear. The tranny shift fine as lon as I hold pressure on the shifter. It is fine in 2nd. and reverse, just drive. I have checked all external linkage & it is fine. I put a b&m shift kit in with no help. I also changed the modulator & tried 3 valve bodies. Any help will be much appreciated.

Re: tranny

Sounds like the shifter linkage may need adjusting. I had that problem when I had the TH400 in my truck.

Re: tranny

do you think it may be the column or the linkage down to the tranny?

Re: tranny

the linkage down at the tranny is outa adjustment. There is the rod with the little slider deal/bolt thing down by the tranny. Just losen it(it might be rusted together and take some convincing to move[img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]) put the shifter in park(in the truck) and then put the tranny in park(at the tranny-the u that the rod goes through-just twist her untill it goes into park) And slide the little slider deal till its in place and tighten it up.

Remember that you need to block the wheels because you will probably move it in and outa park wile under the truck[img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] And make shure you rotate it into park not first. First is all the way in one direction till it stops turning(at the tranny) and park is the other way.

That make sense?

Re: tranny

Sometimes getting the adjustment right can be a bear. If your tranny ****s about alot it can get screwy(nonexistent mounts) Probably just need to fidget with it a bit more...

Edit....I have never heard of symptoms like that being internal....I dont think the little spool valve could be screwy...never heard of one going south like that anyway.
