Default Im in trouble, I stripped the band adjusting screw 47rh

So sorry to bother all, but I need some advise quick. I have a 1994 dodge 2500, 47rh tranny when I was adjusting my reverse band (inside the pan), I was using a 12 sided socket and stripped the hex head, I bought the right socket, and no go, it was too stripped. I might be able to hammer on a 6mm socket to undo the screw but can I remove the screw and replace it or will something worse happen if I take it all the way out. if not can I leave the socket on the screw head permenantly? any body know what to do? Am I screwed? please, please

I am not sure. Are you able to get the bolt out? if so, then you can probably replace the bolt with another one.

Others will chime in.

thanks for the fast reply stodg73, can I take the adjustment screw all the way out without messing anything up?..i hammered a 6mm on, i thought it was close to the 72footpounds that it needed before backing off , I didnt want to strip it any worse so I just backed it off 2...socket is still on, its on there good...buttoned it back up and now NO second gear...before I adjusted it, it was really loose. the little arm was waggling and had a 1/3 inch of play, does that sound loose to anybody?

That would be 6 ft-lbs, then turn 2 turns. Not sure if you killed the transmission, only way to see is to drive it.

No problems, trying to help.

That could be VERY problematic! Let us know what you find out. I am really wondering about it too.

I want to thank everyone who responded, I posted this problem on several boards but you folks had the most helpful imput. I pulled the pan off today and redid the hole operation according to the genos garage paper. Yesterday I hammered a 6mm socket over the stripped adjustment screw and its holding..it also wont come off, so i hope it will be ok. I put everything back together and second gear is back!!! I did not give it a good test drive (just around the parking lot) but tomorrow Ill give it a decent drive. I could only get lucas atf I hope it works out. I also added a drain plug in the pan (should have done that a long time ago)...I cant believe nobody has ever done the "72 ft/lbs- 72 in/lbs before....I will post tomorrow with how it all turned out but I just want youall to know that this board rules for helping idiots like me get back on the road
