I will do this as soon as possible (waiting for a break in the weather).  I
have saved all the old posts for this issue.  But since discovering that I
only had 1st, I want to update the situation.  And manly be advised on what
I did to the engine, running it for so long in 1st.

>Do you have reverse?? Reverse is usually the first thing to go.

Yes, reverse works great.

>Has the PO been into the tranny??? 

He replaced a leaking VM.

Thanks for all the advice.  BTW, according to the Bentley AT Troubleshooting
section, stuck in 1st gear indicates a dirty Governor or dirty valve body as
the only causes, so I am hoping that the Bentley's right.
