I've got a torqueflite 727. There is no reverse and all other gears work great......Could it be the modulator valve or is toast? Have another one here to swap in, but I do not have time to do it before the toy run......Hoping to save myself a little work. Is it possible?[j]

Just what I need, another wagon!

yes there is a fix ... maybe... i work at a tranny shop and the same thing happend too my 727 this summer... turned out it was a blown revers servo seal... easy too fix ... but replac it with the blue updated seal. much stronger...you have too drop the valvebody too do it then loosen the band off and then the snap ring pull it out and change the seal.

IF YOU CANT DODGE IT!
RAM IT!

I had the same thing on my scout. It was the reverse servo piston itself was broken. I got away with sawing the casting away around the end of the shaft. slidding it out, putting in the new piston then slidding it back in and siliconing it.A real backyard fix but it was a beater!

I've had my fair share of 727 reverse problems it will be 1 or more of 3 things worn out or busted band, servo piston, or servo seal
