    In response to PLS

Vacuum issues will not generally cause a slip condition, especially from a stop. Slipping is caused by internal pressure issues like leaking seals or clogged channels and such. Unfortunately my advice is not your option It's always possible that something was done wrong during the rebuild. A lot of people will blame an issue like this on the trans sitting around for too long and seals drying out. I doubt that would really be the case since everything is sealed from the elements. It could be something as small as a tear in a piston seal, a slight tear at that. It's very easy to screw up a seal when building a transmission.

I would also rule out u-joints and the rear end.

All that said, I am no Powerglide expert. I can build a 700r4, 4l60 and 4l80e in my sleep but I am definitely not a fan of the Powerglide.
