On the way back from Fallon the traney in my truck developed problems. slipping in 2nd gear. 1st runs good and 3dr runs good, but if it down shifts from 3rd it's like there is no gear. and on the up shift same thing. run 1st hard then back off, it shifts into 3dr normal. 30mph in 1st up the Donner grade was no fun. The fluid does smell burnt. Is this a bad 2nd gear band? does it need adjusting or a complete rebuild?
I know 4 speeds but not autos, and It is a REAL B#$%H to get out of the 72 Ford 3/4 ton Camper Special 2 WD 360

Same thing happened to my F150 this past summer. No second gear. I drove the truck a couple of weeks that way until I finally pulled it. In my case the second gear set/clutch assembly was complete trash

It is possible you broke the intermediate band or the band is worn out. They can be replaced without removing the transmission if what they call a 'snap band' is still available.

Check around the transmission parts suppliers and see if they still make it.

To install it you would drop the pan and valve body, loosen the servo adjust screw, cut out the old band, slide the new on around and hook the parts back and then adjust the band and re-install the VB and pan. Fill with fluid and see if that was the only problem with a road test.

Flex or "snap" bands are alive and well. They are still widely used by many transmission shops. I concur that the band is probably the primary source of your problem. I would drop the pan and have a look first though. You may get lucky enough to just adjust the band and change the fluid/filter.
