    Quite possible . The battered one is the one i removed from the transmission . I turned down a sleeve and pressed it into the larger one.

    I was correct about the forward clutch piston being the problem. The one supplied had too large a inner diameter hole. So i have fixed the problem now and will have the box in again tomorrow. And it will be driving out of the garage.

    I fixed the bands in the correct positions. Changed all the seals on sun gear . I have it running nice in reverse only. no forward gears . I will replace the forward clutch piston i think. it all that's left to do now and it does seem very tight.

    The rear band strut was fine as it was still in place when i removed the valve chest. I am thinking that the front clutch piston might have a faulty one way valve also but i haven't looked at that yet

    I didn't replace the sealing rings . And the did seem to be the same diameter as the shaft , would a good set of seals be a slightly larger dia? All the pipes are fitted snug. when i tapped them in they made a different noise when fitted all the way in. Didnt measure the float end of the input...

    No drive at all and checked everything fitted as it should before fitting it. I will be taking it down again i know. The only thing i can think of now is the new Forward clutch diaphram spring seems to be very stiff compared to the one i removed. how much pressure does the forward clutch piston...

    I am sure thats what went back into it because i only have one steel plate left on the bench out of a pack of 5I only ran it on my car lift for aprox 20 seconds about three times while checking the oil levels. And also checked the front servo was set ok . Would you think that would strip the...

I had forgotten to hook up the manual control valve to the gear selector. Fixed that and expected my gearbox to work. No ...still no drive. The only thing now i can...
