Well, a 77 chevy is out of my experience trail, so I don't know what 
tranny is in it.  I assume we're talking an automatic though, in which 
case I suspect its about 200,000 miles/30 years overdue for an change of 
its atf, or whatever chevy calls its auto tranny oil.  And it could be so 
gummed up its going to have to have the pan pulled, the valve body 
removed and washed up in acetone and/or MEK to remove 30 years of 
accumulated varnish from overheated oil residue.  This "varnish" is whats 
making the valves hang when its cold.  At that point, you might as well 
go ahead and toss it on the bench and put a seal, clutch, bushings and 
band kit in it.  And go see if MicroTest is still making the hotrod shift 
kits for it, they're quite cheap in most cases and work wonders at 
controlling the shift points a lot better.  The only case of all bets off 
is if its the infamous 'slim jim' transmission, it is a headache from the 
gitgo if its ever been stuck in the snow or mud.  But that 77 is a wee 
bit new to have that old headache in it I think.

And yes, we are waaaay (grin) the hell and gone off topic...
