You still have many solonoids and 2nd gear clutches.

No debris isn't an indication of much. Usually it'* the HD units that shred crap. Remind us of your symptoms again?

Yeah I wasn't trying to say I'm in the clear just because the magnet was free of shavings.
I Know there are MANY other things that can go worng in a tranny.
I'm just glad nothing is grinding itself to death.
Symptoms are:
Won't shift @ 6400 anymore
---It did fine for a year untill I tried 6600 shifts. It wouldn't shift at 66 and then when I went back to 64 is wouldn't shift either.
Sometimes the car won't shift into OD/D/1st completely. It feels like your pressing the gas and slowly letting the clutch out on a manual.
---After about 5 mins. of driving it shifts fine.
---It'* done this about 6-7 times but hasn't done it in almost a week.

Other than that it shifts fine, no slipping, noises, falling out of gear, or anything else.
