If you ever see a diff pin protruding from where it should be, the diff is JUNK period!!

If you have reverse, you know that the you have a solid connection between the 2nd clutch drum and the front planetary. So if you have a good 1st gear and it goes to neutral when it is supposed to upshift into 2nd, the valve body is making the 1-2 upshift. So either 1-your 2nd clutch is not holding, 2-you have a problem with the 2nd clutch hub on your input housing or 3-you have no oil going to the 2nd clutch.

OK, I checked the oil pressure and I had 54 psi, so I'm going to swap out a new clutch pack then.

Make to to verify that your repair will actually fix the trans before you put it back in the car.

Do all your air checks and make sure that everything mechanically is OK. Just go over everything that I outlined. You definitely have a mechanical issue. Make sure that you find the cause of the problem.

Looking over that diff a bit closer, ya, I think this may have been the start of the problem.

If you had pulled that diff. You would have noticed the gears/pin being floppy etc. I've been there, but pulled the diff and said "this doesn't look good".

I have also found that same bearing to look like that.
