well thanks you very much. Im going to do that first thing in the morning. I did adjust the band somewhat and the second gear is still slipping a little but if i screw it all the way in then out 2 turns that should stop that.

It must be torqued to 10'lbs, then backed off from there.

Leave it well enough alone.
There is obviously a problem that needs to be corrected.

yeah i think i might. I cant seem to screw that stud/adjuster bolt in far enough to get any torque on it. I would assume this means the second gear band is gone and needs to be repaired?

usually once a trans starts slipping it needs a new band and maybe other parts as well.

it is probably a combination of things worn out.

sounds like new transmission time, sorry.

If you are unable to screw the adjuster in far enough to get the correct torque the servo is not the problem.
