Hi, new to this forum. I'm getting ready to tear down / partially disassemble my hydramatic and am in search of any other thoughts on my issue before I do. This started last fall and I have yet to resolve it. I posted this in the classic olds forum last fall and received some much appreciated feedback. Just looking for any other hydramatic tips or suggestions before I disassemble this thing. 1951 Olds hydramatic: driven out of drive way down the street and back first time in years. ( 10+ ?) Shifted late and hard. (nothing new) Pulled back into drive to drop the pan drain torus and clean screen, clean valve body... before I do I back up once and it sticks in reverse and will not let go. Reverse only... forward gears engage but will not move forward, bogs down as if under load (resisting reverse cone clutch is my guess) In neutral reving up, car inches forward a bit. No pushing the car forward in neutral unless cranking or idling. I've since drained pan, torus and cleaned screen, valve body (several times) checked linkage, checked the movement of the servos with air... I'm about to pull the tail shaft to remove the reverse clutch assembly. Any other thoughts? Much appreciated.
