Large weight affects Part Throttle, slow speed shift timing.
Light affects WOT shift timing.

Standard & HP Gov comparison Pic >>
SS Monte Carlo & Olds 442/HO are similar to the GN/T-Type Gov, the Heavy weight is slightly larger tho'.

"lowriderr9" -- Changes to the Gov will have an effect on all gear shift points so, shimming the 1-2 shift spring in the Valvebody is an option. Valvebodies/Govs are calibrated for rear gear & tire size.
