high on gas fumes
At mid throttle, all shifts are nice and firm but at light throttle, the 1-2 shift occurs around 2800 which is a neck snapper. The 2-3 and 3-4 shifts are a little late but nothing major. At WOT, it won't go into 2nd gear and will just take a nosedive until I get off the throttle. It has an FTS 9.5" 3200 stall converter and I've read that this stall speed will sometimes cause higher shift points. Is this just the nature of this converter? Also have been reading about the governor. The trans was built by the previous owner, and I have no idea what was done and what wasn't. Does this sound like an issue with the governor springs or the converter coupling too late? Or...a combination of both? Thanks.
