If the linkage appears to be cycling properly at the transmission, then the problem is in the transmission and will have to be repaired/replaced.

SOURCE: How do I get my two speed powerglide stuck out of reverse in my 68 El Camino.

Unless the problem is in the linkage for the shifter you will need to tear down the transmission to find the problem.

Powerglide will not engage any gear has been sitting for 8 years

Check line pressure to make sure pump is working. Most likely that the valve body is stuck try some trans additive may free it up but if it does change fluid

TH 350 transmission question

Thought you had an old "slip & slide powerglide" ! I like the way they originally cursed them, then all the racers wanted them all of a sudden. Anyway, if you have the TH350, which your obviously cruising and shifting manually, just go with gear selection that sounds good to you, RPM wise. I never look at a tachometer, all by ear. The TH 350 are pretty strong too. Then of course there's always a shift kit that will make it bang into next gear & chirp tires for cruising too.

Powerglide tranny rebuilt bines motor and only has reverse

Sounds like the trany shop didn't rebuild the transmission like they were. Take the truck back to the shop and have them rebuild it at their cost, if they did it not to long ago.
