I need some help. Car was on jack stands for a few days to install new tires. While it was up on stands I decided to change my exhaust/ intake gaskets. I started up after installation and it was making a terrible grinding noise. I shut it down after only a few seconds. Now the car is back on all 4 tires and no terrible noise everything is good until I try to backup. The shifter will not physically move into reverse. I even tried removing the column linkage. I also don't have park. It will move onto park but it will not hold the car. I have neutral, drive and low. Is the mechanical linkage inside the trans broken?
Ok. So my '49 roadmaster has been fine and real fun to drive. I now have an excessive transmission leak though. Sucks! It happened when I accidentally shifted into low gear at around 30MPH. Once I got home I noticed the massive amount of bleeding coming from the transmission. It seems to be leaking from the front (I know.. bad news) of the tranny and you can see the fluid spewing out from the bellhousing cover. I removed the cover and the inspection plate, checked my drain plugs on the torque converter and they seem nice and snug. Red tranny fluid noticeable on the flywheel.. The fluid is nice and red. Tonight, while messing around I decided to fire her up for a while. Bad leak still.. but I did notice another location leaking tranny fluid as well.. I saw it in the engine compartment towards the firewall where the block butts up against the tranny right above the starter. Seems to be pumping out from the seam between the block and tranny right next to an angle shaped plate!! I attached a photo of this area... Also, if anyone knows of an ol timer or one who could help me out around the Inland Empire area / Southern California it would be MUCH appreciated (shops e.t.c...). Jerrys 49
