Is the transmission rebuilder telling me the truth?
I just had the trans in my 62 t-bird convertible rebuilt. When its warmed up real good it slips in reverse. The rebuilder tells me that this is quite normal and the trans needs to "settle in" and will improve in time. Is this true?

if trans had to settle in how many cars would be sold new with the same problem? sounds like the reverse band needs adjustment.

Wasnt this a problem with all Ford transmissions in the early 60's? I had a 2 friends which owned 2 different 1962 Ford Galaxies and BOTH would randomly drop into reverse. In fact in one instance he was warming his car up in the morning, he jumped out to go inside and grab his coffee, left his drivers door open, the car dropped into reverse (by itself), the drivers door was peeled off as it left the garage and finally came to rest on an out-building behind the garage!! So be careful!!

Your tranny may be fine, it just may be a flaw of the transmission design?
