Only have 1st gear

I installed the trans-go 40-2 kit yesterday and everything went fine until I drove it. It only has first gear, even when its suppose to be in reverse its still in 1st... any ideas?

Re: Only have 1st gear

You probably missed the manual shift valve.
Drop the pan and install it in the proper position.
