o. Low and Reverse Servo (Rem).
Be careful not to lose the thrust washer
(1) Compress the low and reverse servo piston spring
located between the rear end of the input
using the engine valve spring compressor. Remove the snap
shaft and the forward end of the output
(2) Remove the spring retainer, spring, and servo pis-
ton and plug assembly from the case.

(1) While supporting the output shaft and driving shell,
carefully slide the assembly forward and out through the
a. The following procedures cover disassembly, inspec-
tion, repair, and assembly of each subassembly as removed
from the transmission.
(2) Be very careful not to damage the ground surface
on the output shaft during removal.
b. Heli-Coil or equivalent inserts are recommended for
repairing damaged, stripped, or worn threads in aluminum
l. Rear Band and Low-Reverse Drum. Remove the low-
reverse drum, then loosen the rear band adjuster and remove
the band strut and link. Remove the band from the case.
c. Pre-sized service bushings are available for replacement
for almost all bushings in the transmission. The two bushings

(1) Remove the bolts from the rear side of the reaction
shaft support and lift the reaction shaft support off the

(3) Drive out the oil seal with a blunt punch.
b. Inspection Procedure.
(1) Look for wear or broken locks on the interlocking
steel rings mounted on the reaction shaft support (figure

(4) Inspect the pump rotors for scoring or pitting.
(3) Withdraw the piston from the transmission case.
(5) Clean the rotors and install them in the pump
(4) Disassemble the "controlled load" servo piston
body. Then place a straightedge across the face of the rotors
