Reverse clutch could be smoked or your reverse band is out of adjustment. (or broke)

well i had to put a rebuilt tranny in it to the tune of 1500 dollars, not sure what was wrong with it, the shop that did the work had one ready to go on the shelf, so my wife got a transmission for Christmas this year!

If you would have removed the tranny pan I bet you would have found a portion of what appeared to be a huge snap ring. Its a very common problem.
Remove drive shafts and transfer case
Remove bolts holding od unit to front half of the trans.
Slide rear ward and be careful with the park rod.
On a bench note order of thrust washer and spacer
Remove od clutch pack retaining rtying and wavy ring
Remove od clutches and note order for reassembly
Remove direct drive unit
In a shop press, depress the direct drive pack enough to remove the remainder of the ring and then insert the new ring.

Reassemble

You really should buy the fsm before doing this job.

The snap ring is broken in the overdrive unit. How do I know? Guess...

If anyone has this problem in the future, you'll also need a shaft alignment tool to align the clutch packs and since you're in there you'll want to replace those clutches with new and buy a new bearing and thrust washers. You'll need access to a shop press for sure.

The guy at http://www.cascadetransmissionparts.com/ is a really cool guy and has everything you need. It's where I bought all of my parts from.
