The center support bolt is your 2nd gear apply feed...If loose,will give you a 1-2 slip,or just slide thru till it goes into 3rd in most cases..then the bolt will eventually break,giving you a whole set of new problems............. When you put it in reverse,2 things have to happen for it to back up...the reverse band and the direct [3rd gear] cluthes have to apply.If just the band applies,and not the clutches,or visa-versa,you will feel a slight bump when you put it in R,but no movement. And since you also have no 3rd gear when driving,and the reverse band has nothing to do with 3rd,thats telling me that the problem is in that 3rd gear drum.
