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.
