Govener recal on TH350?

I just installed a transgo shift recal kit on my th350 and I am pleased with the results, however I would like the shifts to be even more crisp. I put the trans kit in after I installed a 3000 stall. My question is, how difficult would it be to recalibrate the govener? I would have to buy the B & M or tci kit. Could anybody explain how to do this? Are there any pros or cons to this modification....

The governer only has to do with shift timing not firmness. Look at the post on rebuilding the TH-350 on this sight to help find what your after.

the 3000 stall converter is probably softening the shifts, the one i had did.

Thanks for the input guys. What I would like to do at this point is to lenghten the shift points of the trans. They seem to be way too soon.

Yes, it is hooked up. When I floor it, sometimes it kicks down and other times it doesn't.

I am using an adjustable b & m modulator and yes, it is attached to a vac manifold port from a holley carb. I have not adjusted the modulator yet, I am not sure which way to adjust it for quicker shifts....

turn it in clockwise about a half a turn and see how it is before you do anymore. there should be an adjuster on your kickdown cable.

this might help you out. http://www.dragracingonline.com/tech...vi_9-bm-1.html
when i did mine i just disassembled it and ground the weights down smaller. almost an 1/8 inch on each side of the weights. it will shift at 5200 rpm now. cheaper than buying the kit. but the kit has more, i think the lightest weights in the kit will make it shift at 6100 rpm.

I second that. It seems more and more like instructions for adjustments never make it in the box anymore. Same thing with adjustable vacuum advance cans for a distributor.

When you put the kit in the trans did it supply new gov springs? If so you may wan't to put the old ones back in.
