More transmission troubles
I just got my caprice all assembled, and when I fired it up, I don't have reverse!
In the forward gears it seems to work fine, althought I didn't take it for much of a drive because I didn't have much of an exhaust system. I don't know if the transmission would shift, but it did move under its own power.
But the car doesn't do a thing in reverse, its just like neutral. I played with the shifter (although it did seem to line up fine for the other gears...)
Also, the transmission started leaking fluid, apparently from the base of the dipstick tube, and apparently the speedometer output and maybe the rear seal.
The transmission is a TH350. This is transmission # 2, the other one spewed fluid out the top of the dipstick and slipped quite a bit in gear.
What's the deal? The guy I got the transmission from said I can bring it back and swap it, although he said he wasn't sure if he had another short-shaft, but that transmission will be used too...
