Borg warner 1:1 not engaging

Borg warner 1:1 stopped shifting into gear we assumed clutches went out so we proceeded to rebuild transmission with no luck. So after looking around and disconnecting linkage I've found it's just not shifting into any gear. Where
Could my problem be I've seen some say not building pressure but the pump is as simple as it gets and I can't imagine a gear failing. Anyone have this problem before and solutions? All feedback will help, hopefully this is a simple solution.

Bump. Anyone have any experience with any of this happening.

Well if you disconnected the shift cable and manually moved the lever and the trans doesn't engage it can only be a couple of things. Either you are not building pressure or the clutch pack wasn't done right.

The clutch pack has to be assembled and then measured for the correct snap ring thickness. This normally isn't an issue if you you replace the clutches with the same number that came out.

So, then you must not be building pressure. I don't recall if the shift drum can go in two ways, but you might want to check and make sure you put in the way it came out.

With the way you said it failed I doubt that it was clutches. When clutches go bad in these transmissions they start slipping and the fluid will take on a burnt smell and a brownish look. When they stop working all at once then its probably the pump.

Malfunction check list. You'll probably want to do a pressure test first. You'll need a pressure gauge that goes up to 300 psi.

I haven't yet made it to try any of these solutions but I was talking to a buddy who is having similar problems and he is lead to thinking it's his selector valve. Does this make sense to anyone? any thoughts on this

How do I check for that. I guess that would eliminate the knowing if the pump is working or not.
