ford aod reverse shift

Hi. I realy need to know what activates the reverse in a 1988 5 litre aod [not aode] f-150. Went to back in the driveway after a trip, which the trans worked perfectly. Crisp shifts all day long. No problems.Idid feel a snap sound thru the shift lever when i put it in reverse. Now no reverse. Drive gears work. The engine also revevs up when i put it in reverse. All linkages is in tack. Does the TV cable have anything to do with reverse. I checked the cables comming off the throttle body [efi] and on the trans but appear ok. Fluids ok too. I can't believe the trans is toast after working so good all day. It has about 100,000 mi. of lite duty use.

Cool

There is a band and a clutch pack that apply for reverse.

The servo for the band is a steel piston with molded rubber. it is common for the rubber to harden and allow fluid to blow by.

If all other forward gears are functioning normal , the reverse problem is not linkage.

At 100k miles I imagine the tranny needs a rebuild

My worst fear was to rebuild the trans. It worked so well till then.Is it not possible the internal linkage broke? Is their a linkage with a spring in there that may have collapsed?
Thanks for your input.
