I had a tranny I pulled from my parts Jeep that I loaned to Ralph before he left for Colorado. He rebuilt it hisself and stuck it in his J10. He said that it would not shift into third, so he had his old tranny rebuilt and removed this one from his truck.
After talking with folks in the know, Ralph decided that the governer valve was stuck, and that the back end of the tranny had to be opened and the valve freed up.
I lost reverse in my Cherry over a month ago. I opened up "Ralph's" tranny and looked at what I assume to be the governer valve. When I spin it, it looks like it's moving, but I'm not sure how far it is supposed to move, or if I'm actually looking at the correct component.
o Take my cherokee to the tranny shop and let them fix reverse on the tranny.
o Take "Ralph's" tranny to the tranny shop and see if they can figure out what is wrong with it.
o Wait for someone on this board to tell me how to get "Ralph's" tranny working.
o Buy good tires for the J20 and let the Cherokee sit all winter.
