As far as I understand, no it will not cause a no 1st issue since it is tucked away between the forward and 3-4 clutches. I am assuming that the sprag is free-wheeling in the direction that it should be locked to make forward movement. This could also be the reason that I can not get any 3rd gear action in the "D" gear selector position (not overdrive). The transmission gets from 1-2 no problem but holds 2nd no matter what I try and "OD" just acts like neutral.
Basically it is acting like the opposite of what it should.
