Just got an old 85 Chevy 4x4 with tranny problems
It has reverse and no forward gears. Just wondering what might be wrong with it
I have very little tied up in this project and I am considering rebuilding the trans myself.
I just wondering how difficult it is to rebuild and what I need to look for

A Transmission chain repair shop, decided to hire people off the street, give them some training, instead of paying good money, to a good Mechanic.
They had so many comebacks, and got rid of so many people, that at the end of the year, they sent out 23, W2 forms, for a 4 man shop.
So, it may be a learning curve. How many times are you willing, to go back through it, to get it fixed right?
A good Mechanic, will try to find out why it failed, and fix the problem, so it does not happen again, rather than just replace parts.

if your still working on this thing, first thing i would check when i pulled it apart would the rear planetary or input sprag, both will cause the same issue
