Reverse Problems
Reverse (Binding In Reverse) - Is there something specific that causes N to be a drive gear? Usually when I experience a bind up in reverse, it is because the forward clutches failed. The forward clutch is on in all forward gears only. When the forward clutches fail they go metal to metal and what you have is too much clearance in the drum causing the forward apply piston to come out of its bore. When this happens, the forward apply piston will not return to the release position and the clutches stay applied no matter what gear you put it in including reverse or neutral.
