Default powerglide won't go in reverse

I just got my s-10 running today but my powerglide won't go into reverse. It drives great foward but will not engage reverse. I bought it used and don't know much about. It does have a brake but again I don't know much about it. Any clue to what might be happening? Any input would be great. Thanks.

Thinking the same thing........If it's a pro brake you will have to set the brake to get it to reverse.......If not you best check you adjustment...

Try putting the Trans in Neutral,and Apply the Trans Brake.You want to have your Foot on the Brake Pedal when you Try this..............?
