KEN: I have a 580C transmission problem and 0 pressure with level in neutral at idle & full RPMS while doing test #1 of the book. Suggestion is that maybe problem with spring inside the spool valve.
Question: Can I remove the spool valve with the trany in place?
Should I also replace al the seals there?
Any suggestion as to where I can get a rebuilt trany (than by CASE $$$$$)
Thanks, Wilson
