hi folks, new guy. 904 torqueflite on a 318, 75 valiant. i just did the low-reverse band adjustment as per a 70s chilton manual (4 turns out), and the carb to tranny linkage adjustment via advice posted online (gas pedal depressed to the floor, carb linkage adjusted all the way back toward firewall, and tranny linkage all the way back toward rear of car). things improved, as before this i was slipping real bad going into 3rd, now it drives soild. my issue is now i only detect one shift and cant be sure what gears i have, if in fact one is missing. it starts from a stop just fine, so i dont think 1st gear is gone. i can open it up on the highway and it sails, but as soon as i take my foot off the gas, speed decreases rapidly as if something were pulling it back. before this adjustment, 2nd gear peaked at about 45mph, so its hard to believe its still in 2nd, not reaching 3rd, if i can go 70mph - but if i move the gear select to 2, i can open it up as if in D. i havent tried to go highway speeds with the shifter on 2, but my feeling is it will. maybe the linkage adjustment tightened things so much im just not used to it, and the missing shift is seemless? looking at a long distance trip so i want to get this right. any ideas?
