The low reverse servo was cactus & the PO had drilled a couple of holes, oversize, in the separator plate.(unnoticed when the tranny was first o'hauled) This, combined with a blocked idle circuit in the Holley(low vacuum), caused the tranny to bang pretty hard, when selecting a gear.
Bands were fine & slight burn marks on the high-reverse clutch plates.
The servo was a one piece unit & the piston was loose on the stem.So, the doctor reckoned the servo would engage when the fluid was cool,but not so after a couple of miles.
How's that sound?Thanks for the help.
