I have a 88 5.0 and AOD that I have installed in a 65 Galaxie Convertable.

Everything seems to be ok(TV pressure, fluid level), but have no reverse. When I click the lever on the trans(car is on jackstands), into reverse, it wants to go into forward gear.

I did change the shifter lever(using a lokar cable) and put a washer btw the lever and the tv lever to keep the tv lever from binding.

Anybody got any ideas why I don't have reverse? I don't know if the trans worked ok before(bought it used, out of the car).

You sure you are in Park?

Your shifter may say park, but it sounds like neutral if you go one click and get a forward gear.
I agree, also nice to see another cleveland floating around out there, good stuff

I know it is in park, cannot move the driveshaft. It will click to all the different positions, but no reverse.

As I stated, I shimmed the tv lever off the shift lever with a thin washer to keep it from binding. Could this be moving something in the trans to keep reverse from engaging?
