I found it. The LPS (line pressure solenoid). LPS + solenoid screwed me up. I thought the "S" had an additional meaning.
Regardles, you must not have reverse. The LPS is located in the transmission. Drain fluid, remove filter and locate LPS. You can switch between gears and actually feel a click when placed in reverse.
No, the clutch won't engage with the engine off and the trans fluid removed. However, with the key on, engine off, you should be able to hear or feel the solenoid respond when shifting into reverse.
One more thing is the gear position sensor which is on the side of the transmission if this switch goes out it will cause the transmission not to go into reverse. Check out the diagram (Below)
