      Thanks for the links :D
      So is the repair sleave kit necessary? Or could I just get by with the D-rings and the cover gasket. I don't really want to pull the valve body to have it machined if I can avoid it.

      Also, I read in another thread that you need to drop the valve body to fix this. Looking at Glacier's post it seems like that wouldn't be needed. It seems like he just suggests replacing the seals with the d-ring kit.

      Just remove the 4 bolts holding the cover, and replace the 2 O rings with the D ring kit. Check the gasket, bore, and the servo's tip for damage. Replace those parts if it's necessary. Test the low/reverse band with a long phillips screwdriver.

      Thanks Brooklyn for all your help.
      How do you go about testing the reverse band with a philips?
