Governor and gear were fine. I had a brand new one sitting around so I threw it a and a new cap on just for insurance. I did the trick rich said and the TV cable stopped hanging up. I took it down the road and it shifted into 2nd smoothly at 15mph. Wouldn't hit third...took it back home and wiggled the cable again. Test drove it again and it hit 3rd at about 35mph, but sounded and felt like a real weak shift. Maybe weak isn't the word, but it wasn't normal. It hit 4th gear about 45-50mph. But at 60mph cruising speed my RPM's were quite high...and I never felt the torque conveter "lock-up" like it used to. Maybe the 4-pin connector on the driver side of the tranny? Anyone know if that controls "lock-up"? Thanks Crosley.
