Unfortunately the proper diagnosis of your problem will likely require disassembly. One could pull the valve body and view the color of the band and clutch drums. Pulling the B2 piston might give a successful diagnostic.

The issue for the brain dead techs you are asking is whether you wish to spend 2-4 hours labor diagnosing a problem in a really old transmission that odds are needs rebuilding. Are you willing to spend 2-300 dollars on the diagnosis? If not, I think those with a brain are hiding it. Just like those who own heavy equipment, those with brains, expect to get paid for its use.
