Post Trans Probs

Hi guys im new to the board and I have a question...I have a 1978 F100 Ranger the transmission has never been re-worked or replaced.

When I go around curves, come to quick stops, and when I try to shift into reverse the trans seems to shift into nuetral and I have to tap the gas several times to get it to shift into gear agian. We have just replaced the fluid and filter (even used some trans-clean) and this improved the problem for a while but now its back and its worse. Does this sound like a stuck valve and if so does that mean its time for a re-work or is this a simple problem like a modulator valve.

Hope someone can make sense of this!!

Ranger,
Neutralizes going around corners? Sounds like its low on fluid to me. Recheck it when its hot, in Park on level ground. Check it a couple of times, some Fords are tricky.
