Trans was rebuilt about 8 years ago. Filled with Amsoil synthetic fluid. Has sat since then. Recently got truck running again.
Reverse , first work fine but won’t shift. Using stock shifter, stock cable.
Trans has Bow Tie Overdrives shift improver spring , throttle bracket and shift cable optimizer( adjuster).
Ive adjusted and readjusted the cable.
I was under the impression the trans would shift ( albeit 1,2,3,4 ) rapidly even without the cable adjusted , but mine just stays in 1st.
Should I pull the governor, and check it? Is there a reason it could stick from not being used. We ran the engine briefly after installing the trans but never drove it.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
