I have what started out as a TCI Streetfighter 700r4.
My problem is that I have 1st gear, reverse, but when allowed to shift into 2nd gear it locks up totally---afraid it will damage my rear which is an Auburn/Richmond setup.
I wonder if something broke off inside the tranny, or there is something else going on.
I just drove it around the block in 1st gear only-no problem. I have heard that there has been valve body problems on rare occasion, and that once going into 2nd gear it is also trying to shift into reverse, and thus a total lock up stopping you dead in your tracks. Don't want to totally blow this transmission, or snap something in the rear. Talk about putting on the brakes, this was a shock.
This is in a custom '82 camaro Z/28, 305 crossfire injected engine, w/Hurst 1/4 stick shifter.
