700r4 won't shift out of first gear

I got a 700r4 in a T Bucket and we were doing a bucnh of burn outs for little kids. It was a very controlled event. SO DON"T GO THERE. anyway doing a lot of burn outs and now it won't shift out of low gear. I have park, reverse and low. put it in drive and it won't shift at all. Tried to manual shift no go either. I pulled the gov out and the little valve inside was stuck so I got a new gov, and put it in, but it did not help. Any ideas what to look at?

Pull the govenor, most likely the plastic gear just gave up. Also ck the drive gear, make sure its locked to the shaft.

I put a new gov in it. The gear was fine.

Looks like it has to come out.

Pull the pan first, see if the TV valve is stuck 'in'. The valve behind the aluminum plunger can sometimes stick. This will cause the pressure to be sky high, making the trans think it's WOT.

If the TV linkage is broken, same thing, the TV check ball will seat and the pressure will max out.

It's in the valvebody, shouldn't have to yank the trans.
