T-350C problems

Hi all, I have a 1981 Turbo T.A and my tranny decided to take a dump on me so I googled th350 rebuild and I found Hot Rodders (very cool name). Any and all help welcome. Thanks.

What do you mean by "took a dump"? In my 81' 'Bird i had the tranny lines blow up in my rad filling the tranny with water and coolant, shredding my clutches. I bought a B&M rebuild kit and a shift kit $200 on Summit put it behind a 454BBC havn't had any problems since. And of course i bought a new TC.

More Info would help. What problems does the Trans have?

Suggestions:
ATSG Manual & Rebuild Video.
Hughes Performance Rebuild kit or other brand, B&M, TCI etc.. but don't buy a rebuilt B&M or TCI Trans.

i'll try this again to the best of my ability. when driving home from work my trans was making noises and a lil skipping and slipping. I made it home but around a block away the car would not move at all. Motor runs,shifter shifts and the fluid is full. I took off the bottom pan and noticed what looked like graphite, like gears that have been ground to dust. Car has been sitting ever since. Does this help?

The material in the Pan is from Clutch Friction, Bushing wear etc., it builds up over time. More than a Teaspoon = Rebuild time.
Your Trans could have many problems, Torque Converter, Pump, Filter, Linkage, Seals etc..
Was Fluid level Ok? Filter plugged/stopped up?
Try doing a Pressure Test on it. Line Pressure Tap/Port is just rear of 1-2 Accumulator cover on passenger side.
