    4250 transmission problem

    I have a 4250 that seemed to be jumping out of gear when backing up hill. All of the 15 forward gears worked fine.
    One mechanic suggested it might be a blown gasket in the control valve housing. I replaced all O rings and gaskets in that and modulating valve. It didn't change anything.
    After this I was 'messing' around with it to try to get some rhyme or reason to when and why it was doing this, and I discovered that when it appeared to jump out of gear, all I had to do is step on the clutch for a little while and then let it out and it would go again.
    Then it suddenly quit working entirely and now it won't move in forward or reverse.
    I put in new oil filters, sump screen cleaned out.
    175 psi at 2000 rpm at system test port
    8 1/2 - 10 psi at 1000 rpm on the lube pressure test port on the return oil manifold when testing circuits.
    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Welcome to GTT
    I think 1st thing to do is take pressure reading on clutch control valve & if in spec then check pressures in all gears

    We finally found the problem after consulting many mechanics. It was the tow disconnect. We had to build a gallows to raise the cab, with the help of an engineering friend, and the actual repair didn't take long.
