Ok, I got in touch with a trans part supplier in Houston (jie.com). Very helpful! Spoke to Jurgen; he advised me to pull the pan and valve body and inspect the rearmost band. Jurgen knows his transmissions. The rear band was broken on the servo side (wouldn't clamp against the drum). Now my question is: is there anyone with Auto Trans experience that can help me? IE does trans need removal or is this an in chassis fix? Are there any other concerns while I'm here and so on. If you have Auto Trans concerns give JIE a call!
SOLVED R&R trans and replaced rear band and front two bands for good measure. Replaced seals and valve body gasket and reinstalled. Satisfactory road test. Now on to next concern...........
