On my 58 flightomatic, it is a long bolt that is located next to the fluid level dipstick/filler, and is bullet shaped on the end that goes into the transmission, it looks like oil runs against it and it has a lock nut to adjust it further in or out of the trans. It reminds me of a large fuel/ air adjustment on a carburator. What is it and how should it be adjusted?

This is one of the band adjustment bolts. It has a critical adjustment. Refer the shop manual for correct procedure.:)

Do you know if it is the reverse band adjustment?

According to the oil flow chart and the "operation description" in the Stude. Repair Manual the band adjustment bolt & lock nut on the outside of the case does adjust the rear band, it is in use in Low and reverse.
