ok, i nd some help. i have a powerglide with a direct coupler. i put a valve body in that you pull out disengage/ engage. the tranny worked fine on stands. on the ground i cant get it to go into first. the motor dies, its like its dumping to quick. it works fine in reverse. we had to push the car then dumped the lever and the car then worked and the tranny worked. i couldnt feather it no matter how much i tried. could the band be out of adjustment or the clutch pack be to tight? the tranny was just rebuilt. thanks for any info ahead of time.

Band adjustment should be 3 turns. tighten band ***** to 70 inch pounds (about as hard as you can pull the allen wrench with one finger) then back off three turns, tighten nut.
