starting a new thread on why my 59 dodge cr 361  cast iron 466 torqueflite  trans won't shift into reverse.

car has ben sitting for atleast 8 years . 

dumped in a bottle of trans X to soften rubber seal conditioning .

trans shifts into drive neutral  and first gear ok. just no reverse . the gear shift pod buttons were all sticking  so I double d40 all that  and the buttons pop backout now.

I started to check all adjustments  here is what I found >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

ok so I  ......... checked the throttle linkage today and that was way off.. as you can see I had to move the throttle by carb adjustment 3/4"  also had to adjust  the slide on the trans  lever too.  . will start it up again when weather  is better and see if that made any changes to the way it shifts. It's a start . you just have to check everything when you purchase a car you know nothing about . someone may have tried to fix it and really scred it up.  I kind of knew something was set up wrong  when I seen the accellerator pedal was almost on the floor .     I set it up to according to the mopar service manual  says .   carb linkage 1/2" from firewall and loosen thottle lever linkage slide  and  holding tension  back on bell crank rod  and hold lever in trans forward while  tightening slide.  done.. things  were way off.

 that a466 sure has a lot of parts inside .

External linkage has nothing to do with Reverse.

The pushbutton shifter pulls on the cable for "1" and pushes the cable for Reverse. If you can eyeball the shifter from under the dash, verify that the cable moves when shifted from Neutral to Reverse. If it does, the problem isn't the shifter.

Again, have you tried adjusting the rear band?

Problem could be the front pump pressure, x2 or 3 in R. If the pump (or o-rings) is weaked the pressure doesn't reach the requested value.
Best is to remove oil pan and looks at the manual lever if it moves in each position. http://www.ch300imp.com/tqf-sw.htm

Thanks Phil ! I appreciate all your info on this issue you guys !! now that the bottle trans x has been in the car now for a few days, maybe the seals might be softening up some and help the shifting issue.

Really Good News to report .........Here is what we found out to correct the no reverse issue. when to adjust the reverse band and long and behold the the lock nut was back way off. ALL loose and tangling there. Sooooooooo , set it up according mopar repair manual and pushed the REVERSE button and away she went .What a relief !! so all gears are working the way they should now. just a simple fix.

Well that is great news. I have a A-466 being rebuilt (which will be done Wednesday) and I have no clue whether it will work or not. (It needed a new front pump and both bands plus plus plus).

Consider yourself lucky

Always best to go through the simple things first. How is the rest of the car going along?

Thanks 1960fury and jon ! wondering why that lock nut was backed off. could have been vibration .... I've seen that before, or someone was trying to fix something and gave up. who knows.
