We tried adjusting the cable the other day as wel and didnt get anything but going to try it again tomorrow some time (probably after the ford show) i will let you all know. If that doesnt work ima talk to a tranny shop, if they tell me it needs another rebuil ima use first and second only until i kill it again.
I am at work right now but should be home late Wednesday . Thursday I will pull the pan off the tranny and put that wayward spring in. Then put the engine and tranny back in the Jeep, we will have to see how I do. I ended up having the crank shaft reground on the engine, pulled the tranny apart enough to replace the clutch packs and steels, a new forward band and a shift kit. What could possible go wrong LOL.
re-adjusted the TV cable, it will shift second at high RPM (seems a little too high), and will actually shift third if i let off the throttle for a second, then at full throttle it will kick back down. So its better but not perfect... any other ideas?
I got my engine and tranny back in last night. The flex plate is hitting the fly wheel, so it is a little noisy. That will be job #1 today.
It would seem that I have no first gear, I have reverse 2nd and 3rd. So job #2 will be a cable adjustment, hopefully that will work. If not then I will try a front band adjustment. Should that still not work I will have to go back in.
