Default 1997 1500 4X4 518 model trans- no drive, yet manually it shifts. Overdrive unit?

Dropped the pan and there is all the different metals in the bottom. Funny thing is I have all forward gears and reverse. It have to shift maually yet they are still there. I've not rebuilt these units with the overdrive. I've done plenty of the 904's and 727's in my time. That is what is strange. I have a trans and good overdrive already laying on the work bench. The trans has burnt clutches and cracked annulus gear unit. I'll get that ready and put it in my truck that is down. I thought maybe you folks would have a good suggestion on the rebuild I plan to do. I know I'll need a torque and totally flush out the cooler and lines. I may just put new lines on and by-pass the radiator cooler for a external mounted cooler. Any good advice I appreciate it. I've worked as a mechanic since the early 80's. Grew up around muscle cars.

Nothing special about rebuilding these, really. Are you needing the service info on the O/D unit?

No, but thank you for reply. I notice that in drive it will squeal, low sound noise, and will not take off until you drop it manually into low. Then it takes off fine. Shift up through the ranges to drive; it has a slip then engauge into second and is fine after that shifting up. I will get my other unit rebuilt and ready to install. Reman torque and rebuild kit should do it.
