That almost sounds like the direct clutch seals are the culprits.

3rd and reverse share a common clutch pack.

Unless it's been opened before the internal seals will be hard, shrunk and possibly split.

29 spline wont fit unless you change the convertors.

I'd get a kit for yours and keep it original.

When you get it out and clean record any stampings in the case. They could have great resale value.

Numbers and letters can be traced to date of manufacture.
