Re: ford ranger trany
Yes you can adjust the bands, but not for 1st gear. Of the two bolts you see, the front one is for 4th gear and the rear one is for 2nd. Is first gear the only problem you have? Does 1st gear work fine if you use manual 1st?

The indicator has an adjusting wheel under the steering column cover. Once the cover is off, it requires no tools to adjust, just use your fingers and turn the small plastic wheel as needed till it is back where it belongs
change the trany fluid and filter. get some lucas transmission treatment and put it in before you put your trany fluid in. after all fluids are in and everything is together start the vehicle and hold foot on brake and go through the gears it might slip a lil the first 5 min of driving or until fluid works through trany.
I also have a 95 Ford F150 4x4 5.0l, extended cab two piece drive shaft. E40d trany in fourth gear accelerating or not it will vibrate badly but only slightly in any other gears. The first thing I did was rebuild the trany, no luck same exact conditions. All clutchs and bands replaced, synthic fluid, new torque converter, and a shift kit from TCI. Still does the same thing.
When you say "pull" I assume you mean it wont go foward..
1st thing -check the trani fluid while the engine is running in park..
The tranies in these trucks are known to give out.. Reverse is usually run on the 3rd gear band.. It could mean that the band for 1st gear is damaged.. Could also be a vacume & or modulator issue.. Some trani shops give free estimates..
I have a 91 ranger. There are two band adjustments on the transmission that is supposed to be adjusted every 60K miles. There are two adjustments, one for overdrive and the other for everything else. The overdrive adjustment is closest to the front of the transmission and the other is back behind it closer to the shift lever on the driver side. The locking nut is a 19" and there is a tool you get for the other nut. I have found a 3/8th (I believe) 12 point socket will fit on the square. You loosen the lock nut, then you tighten the band adjustment bolt to 10 foot pounds. Then you back the bolt off 2 full turns, then hold it in place while re-tightening your lock nut. I had to adjust my bolt in 1/4 turns at a time after test driving to get the transmission to shift just right.
what is the (revolutions per minute) rpm of your engine when the torque converter engages, was the torque converter rebuilt too? what type torque converter is in the ford ie low stall where it engages the gear box at around 900 to 1000 rpm. has there been any power band adjustment by the company that rebuilt your automatic transmission after the insallation.
