I was driving my 70 Torino the other day. Stopped at a intersection. Went to take off again, no forward movement in 1 2 or drive,only reverse. Had car towed home. I removed the pan and found metal shavings in it. I was told it could be the sprag in the converter or the sprag in the trans took a dump. What has happend??

More than likely the forward clutches are toast.

Because you still have reverse, the converter is fine however, there's trash in the converter now. Overhaul time, no question.

Yes, I understand overhaul time. I am going to replace this unit with a fresh C6 that I have. Is there any sure way of cleaning out any trash that might be in the converter. I want to use it again.

Not practical compared to replacement cost.
