Is that the reason the valve body was replaced or is this a new problem?

Still could be a valve body problem! ALL other shifter positions correct, park, drive and manual low?

there is 3 big solenoids and 5 small ones the clip on one of the small ones broke and I can here it a click in the valve body when in reverse does one of the small solenoids work reverse all other gears are fine and reverse worked fine in the old valve body I snapped the clip off one of the small solenoids when removing old valve body

There is most likely your problem! Any way to improvise?
