That my transmission is slippin between 1st and 2nd.
Would be better to find another one or rebuild it....????
Rebuild it! It's is easy and inexpensive to rebuild these transmissions, a person who has never done it before can rebuild one of these in two days!
But before you jump into a money pit buying or rebuilding, first try to diagnose this issue, maybe it's something that can be repaired.
Slipping on the 1-2 shift or in just 1st gear. Could be a clutch issue however if it was a rear clutch issue you would slip in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th!
So the only thing to cause a slipping 1st gear is the overrunning clutch or an issue with the valve body. Now if it's slipping on the 1-2 shift it would be the front band that is the issue and would be corrected by adjusting this band.
