> Hi Gerry.vanagon; 
> I Pablo from Chile, your advice will be too much important for me......Recently refresh my 010 automatic transmission (westfalia 1978), before rebuilt work slipping and old seals and clutches.
> After install master kit and pistons (made in USA) appear new problem, 3º gear in "D" position does not work, not upshift, only works  1 and 2 speed, and reverse gear sometimes work fine. but on occasion, Especially when stopping for only a few minutes after driving for a bit. I put the selector in reverse and nothing for a few seconds, then sometimes it engages smoothly other times it engages very hard with a definite "thunk".
> The specialist in my country has been check it all again two times without success ..... He tells me that only thing that may be happening is that the valve body has a internal failure. 
> Any similar opinion or experience? 
> Thank you and Best regards
