Solve all of the above by just buying a used or rebuilt transmission and torque converter.
Should have a Turbo-350C with lock-up torque converter. You can replace it for less than $150 bucks used, or about $500 rebuilt.

If it is any of those things, the best, and easiest thing to do is to get either a used transmission from the junk yard, or buy a rebuilt one.

Working on a transmission is not easy, and you can end up breaking more than you fix.

Shoot new transmissions sometimes are cheaper than rebuilt ones. Like at our shop it costs like $2500 to rebuild a trans when you can buy one for like $1500 brand new. And you most likely have a TH700 R4 if you have overdrive.
