That will be the medium pan. Not a bad choice

Thank you for the reply,
I am hoping to start rebuild in the next few weeks. I am waiting for the temperature to be warm enough consistently for me to want work in the shop because it is not heated. I would rather work in blazing hot than any sort of cold.
Thank you.

Sure sounds like what is referred to as morning sickness. The seals in the clutch drum have gone hard with age and once warmed up they soften and seal.
Good evening,
We have almost finished pulling the transmission, but the dipstick tube is in my way and I am wondering if it will pull out of the case? I have removed the bolt from the tube bracket, but is will not move and I have not tried using any force.
Please let me know.
Thank you,
Scooter

After all these years it is probably stuck.

Try channel locks. Twist gently.

Squirt some penetrating oil around it.

Good afternoon,
The tranny is out and cleaned up and on the bench. Dipstick did come out with a little force.

This transmission has never had the kickdown lever connected and the previous person cut half off.
when I loosened the shaft nut the lever moved. Do I need to restrain the lever at some position to properly run without it?

Also, when looking at the front of the assembled trans mission, near the lower left pump body bolt is a boss in the aluminum transmission housing that looks like maybe it had a 1/2" hole someone has filled with silicon. I am wondering what that is and if I need to remove the silicon and fix it?
If you need pictures I can send them, but do not know how to upload them here.

Please let me know.
Thank you,
Scooter

If the kd rod won't fall out you can either go that way or get a proper shaft etc.

You are probably looking at the intermediate band plug.

Usually a welsh plug under the goop.
Inside is a shaft the servo apply lever rides on.
Clean the goop and have a look.
It may just need to be regooped.

Thank you for the reply,
I have the valve off now and see the servo shaft you are talking about.

I do not plan to try to connect the kickdown since the car is missing all the linkage. It is a 56 country wagon this has been put in.
But I just wanted to make sure the kickdown shaft going through to inside the transmission does not need to be held at a certain orientation so it does not try to kickdown on its own.

If the kickdown need to be at a certain orientation for daily driving then I can make a way.

I am checking end play before I take anything else apart.
Thank you,
Scooter

If you are not using the kickdown, i'd plug the hole . I use a 3/8 ball bearing is a nice press fit , use some sealer . Leave the shaft out completely.

For that servo lever plug you can refill the hole with slicone just to ensure no leaks

You nust always check the endfloat on disassembly. Helps a lot to get reassembly endfloat spot on first go:)

Thank you for the reply,
From what you are saying, it sounds like the downshift valve will stay in the appropriate position without linkage. I will ask if I can just remove it.

I did not see any oil in the bellhousing, so I can probably just leave it with current plug.

The endfloat was .104. This allowed the washers tabs to come out of the front planet carrier gouging up the aluminum carrier so I need to get a replacement.

Most of the washers need replaced so I will do them all. I do not know if there is a standard thickness for new ones to get an endfloat measurement and order the selective at the same time. I may have to assemble it with the one I have and then order correct one.

The O/R clutch rollers fell out and some of the springs are broke so I need a new one. I see the newer ones are plastic and to leave out snap rings. It appears to fit this late 1973 model. or I can find a metal one.

I will disassemble clutches this morning.

Thank you,
Scooter
