Give us a bit of a re-cap on the history and what is the trans used for?

Low/reverse clutches are only used in manual low gear and reverse. They are more or less a non-shifting clutch. They only have to release coming out of 1st, and apply on a manual 2-1 downshift.

If you are consistantly hurting the L/R pack the first thing I would check is clutch pack clearance.
The second thing I would look for is a crack or porosity in the case in the low passageway area (near the rear of the VB, but check the entire case). Also check the VB for any modifications or problems that could cause a crossleak.

My next thought is that maybe you have some type of dual feed of the directs that is backfeeding low gear. Possibly a bad center seal in the direct drum or sealing ring on the stator.

Tell us more about the trans,
what mods, etc.
