Yup, the forward band broke. Pieces of it were on the bottom of the pan, but the trans tech mentioned the frictions on the band itself were in really good shape.
Going into it tomorrow, said when he tears it down he will look at anything else that should be done while he is in there while it'* out.
$1200 minimum bill, just bought my son his first car too. '1961 Lincoln Continental, the bad thing is the trans on that car is bad too, but the owner of the shop said after they are done with the Bonne he will open up the Lincoln trans and do an inspection at no charge, but I am sure that won't end there.
Wish me luck
