    turbo 400 shifting problems

    i am having trouble with a trans that i rebuilt shifting at higher rpms (between 4 and 5 thousand) at normal driving throttle pressure. this trans was rebuilt with new plates composites bushings and seals. new shift modulator too. i also installed a b&m shift kit,(stage two). i have tried adjusting the modulator, and checking vacuum. but before i dig in to it again, i would like some ideas to look for. this is not the first trans i have done but i don't do them enough to be an expert at them. any suggestion would be greatly apprieciated. thanks ops:

    Have you got it in 3rd gear at all? Does it not shift at all? Need some more detail on the problems

    I don't know for sure but it sounds like you may have a problem with the govner hanging up. About a 100 yrs. ago we used to drill holes in the govner weights to carry the shift point higher.

    Again i don't know if this is the problem, just guessing.

    ya the trans shifts into all gears. last night i looked again at the shift points and it shifted from 1 to2 at 4100 and 2 to3 at 4700. with just enough throttle to get to the rpm. with the car on jack stands it shifted at 3000.
