Any one here that is familiar with the 727 transmission recognize this part?
I started a thread earlier where my 81 Wagoneer had no reverse and drive was a little lumpy. Today I dropped the transmission pan and found the above part in the bottom of the pan. Its a piece of metal approx 1.5" x 1.5" x .125" thick and is broken in half.
Also, the arm that the intermediate band adjustment screw attaches to just flops around and I suspect that this broken part somehow applies tension the the arm.
A couple of questions:
1. Can I replace this part with the transmission in the car? (Can I pull the valve body and reach up there and just put a new metal piece in?)
2. If I can fix/replace this part with the transmission still in the car what other parts (seals, gaskets or anything else) will I have to purchase.
3. Have I lost any other parts (springs, screws or anything else) when this part broke and came loose?
Any or all advice would be greatly appreciated.
(My apologies for this separate thread but I thought this would be the start of a new subect even though its the same car with the same problem).
