TH-400 shift problems...... where\'s reverse???????
TH-400 (2wd..linkage was installed by me, so it is suspect, the shifter free floats with no stops. all "bumps" and "clicks" are directly from the tranny) kick down is vacuum actuated, and hooked up to the carb.
Drive shafts are installed and transfer case is in rear wheel drive. The rear axle is elevated so the tires free wheel.
Park works, locks up the intermediate shaft with a solid click.
Reverse makes the tires spin FORWARD for about 2 feet and then the tranny "locks up" like it's in park again.
Neutral makes the tires spin forward, gas it with the brake pushed in and it is clear that it is not in neutral. It has torque to move the tires in the forward position.
Drive seems like drive (again moving tires forward)
2nd seems like second (again moving tires forward)
1st seems like first (again moving tires forward)
