Have I damaged my tranny?

I was backing my car out for the first time since a complete rebuild of the TH350 and my reverse didn't engage fully...I gunned it a few times to get it going but basically slipped...is it possible that I may have damaged the clutches doing this? I believe it may have been low on fluid but haven't checked yet...pulled it back into my garage...forward worked fine though.

Hi,

How did things work out for you, was it just low on fluid?

I did in fact add some more transmission fluid and reverse seemed to work fine. I'm wondering if my dipstick is off by a lot. Anyway, I did manage to drive the car for the first time since the rebuild but I think there is something wrong with the valve body I modified...it didn't seem to shift properly. When I shifted into second (it's full manual) it acted like I was putting it in park, making a disturbing noise at the same time and slowing down, now I'm really worried. Luckily, I was going very slowly at the time. I'm tempted to tow it to a tranny shop and have them look at it.
