I would use a gauge with 300 lbs. capacity. Adapt the line to fit the case.
In your situation notonly are you looking for pressure in each gear but how it responds when you lose gears. If it ran for a while after the rebuild you likely have a cut seal or a broken metal seal. Check pressures in each gear and report your findings if you need help deciphering them.

What year trans is this.

I had my local hydraulic shop make up my line and its long enough to reach in my car because I work by myself. VERY nice tool to have laying around.

I thank you for the replies . I am at a darn loss here for sure. I will see what I can do about getting a gauge and line to check the pressure. This has been a couple of years of throwing money at the car and still not making many passes..

Some RMVB's won't supply line pressure to the accumulator (middle) test port, in that case you'll have to check the pressure at the front or rear port. Rear in Reverse and front in 3rd.

Okay guys just an update on my junk. I checked the pressure in the front servo in high gear and it was around 145lbs. So I guess the pump is working. I will be pulling the transmission back out and sending my converter to Shawn at Dynamic Converters in De. I hope he finds out what the heck happened. Thanks again for all your help..

I hope all goes well. I pulled my transmission 6 times by myself this year on the floor fighting issues so I know how you feel. The good part of the story is I can now do my own transmissions and not have to count on others. I didn't enjoy pulling transmissions 40 years ago and I like it even less now at 61 years old. Good-luck.

I would place the gauge on the rear servo port and place the trans in manual low. You said it engages then falls out of gear when you tip out of the throttle. This is when you should be monitoring tha gauge - when it falls out of gear. I doubt you will find anything wrong with the converter based on your opening post.

Assuming you have a rear band apply valve body. You won't know until you try it.

I don't have a low band apply valve body and the pressure come up on the front servo as soon as I shifted it into high. The wheels won't turning 1st 2nd or 3rd gear. What other ports should I check ??

No not unless I really rev it up. That is the only way I can get the wheels to turn at all. Forward or reverse just a little harder in reverse.

I would take it back to your friend and have him pull it down.

I did and he checked it out again and installed the new valve body for me. He swears it checks out good and has done many many transmissions before

Could be a missing hard part in the gear train. Don't ask how I know.

1. no trash in pan
2. fluid not burnt
3. have pressure in high gear at idle
4. only moves when revved up in all gears.

= converter is broken
