Transmission locks in reverse
1976 300D 722 four bolt pan transmission: When first started on a cold day, proceed to back up in reverse and car suddenly stops...move shift lever out of reverse and transmission 'unlocks'...shift back to reverse...same thing. Takes several "reverse then out of reverse" operations to get out of parking space. Once transmission has warmed up, no reverse problems. Reverse band adjustment is set to prescribed 1 3/4 turn out from .5 mkp setting. None of the transmission manuals, including the ATSG 722 manual, describes this symptom. Anyone else have this problem or know the "fix"?
