Low gear band is first
high gear clutch (in the drum) is second
Reverse clutch is the pack in the case (back of the trans)
Only one of these is on at a time.....ONLY ONE! If you have a transbrake valve body, the reverse pack is energized when the brake solenoid is energized, locking the trans internally.
This is the most basic trans for power flow. Good luck mastering it. Many fight this trans, few understand it....

Powerglide.

Thank You For the info. I believe I have the problem solved. the hub in the Second (direct) clutch is for a four clutch pack . and the previous builder installed five . With Five friction plates the hub is too short and the last plate strips on the teeth. I took the clutch out of another Poweglide which has a wave plate , then a steel then alternatly four friction and steels. This is the way to go or purchase a hub that is longer such as used on 396 engines.

aftermarket hubs are long enough and waaay stronger than OEM. Sonnax has them , other companies too
