Crosley, thanks for responding.
I will change the plunger bushing to the old one and let you guys know.
The gov. weight are the stock ones with the yellow and green spring from the B&M kit (medium). I even added more weight to the inner weights by welding material on them. But that also didn't lower the WOT shiftpoints.
trees, when I installed everything, I based my carb linkage info on the following on Sumners Homepage
The linkage I use is shown in fig.17. The text says that this was a factory setup. The centerline radius on my carb measures 1.1". I also measured the angles and came to the same.
