i have a 1987 416 cat backhoe, and i seem to have lost reverse, i changed the trans fluid,filter, and cleaned the screen. i found some iron fillings on the screen, and a small circular plastic part of a ring about 2-3 inches in diameter. after changing the fluid and filter etc., i did have reverse but it seemed to have lost power backing up a hill in 4 wheel drive, and didn't spin any of the wheels. i drove it back from the garage, mostly in 4th gear,about 4 miles. when i got back i had reverse, then lost it after the first backdrag aout 20 feet. i parked it and later on i went out and checked it to see if it had just over heated and i did have reverse in 1st gear. i didn't drive it any more for fear i might do more damage . could it be the torque converter. also i have all gears in forward, but as i said, reverse is the problem. what do you think?

Check the wires that go to the shift solenoids. Mice love to eat then. Had the same issue with my 416c
