Good news -


Someone who has rebuilt these transmissions said that you need the motor torque for the neutral drain to function and that there's not enough in a drill for it. He said that he'd never had a problem after putting in the new neutral drain  parts.


This encouraged me to go ahead even though the old parts didn't look that worn.


I went ahead and put it all back together and it's now neutral draining.


Thanks to everyone for your help.
