Why do I not have reverse when I have other gears?

700R4 or 350 turbo transmission

At first I started losing reverse and O/D gears, so I started driving in 2, 1 gears then I lost them. I was then told it was due to lack of tranny fluid cuz I had a worn out rear seal gasket. So i replaced that and put my drive shaft back in and it looked as if it was not in all the way but I had all my gears back except for reverse. I even put Lucas stop slip fix and I still dont have reverse, am I doing something wrong or what, cuz I don't know?

Check your fluid levels the first gear to go when you dont have fluid is reverse followed by 3rd . If all is good there then youve done damage to the valve body by running it when you had no fluid

Remember when checking fluid to have the motor warmed up and running while checking
