governor help

First of all I want to say Hi to everyone, b/c this is my first post on this site.

I saw a question very similar to mine but i think I need to ask anyway.

I have a th350 (lockup, but it is disconnected) that I recently put a shift kit in. It worked great for about a week, then started shifting hard and late out of 1st and then go directly to 3rd. The governor plunger was stuck, so I Cleaned it up well until it worked freely then reinstalled it. It all worked great for about 2 miles, then began doing the same thing as before. What will cause the governor to stick again so soon? Nothing seems to be wrong with the tranny itself as long as the governor is not stuck. .......Also I just noticed in the box my shift kit came in was the little plastic and screen filter that came down when I pulled the valve body to put in the shift kit. I left it out on accident. Could this hurt anything, or most of all could this be my cause of the governor hanging up? Thanks for any ideas!

Jeremy

Junk must be coming from somewhere in the transmission to plug the governor like that.
Yes you need the thimble filter.
Quite often the governor feed holes will have a screen too.
How did you disconnect the lock up feature?
If you unplugged the wire connection that ain't gonna do it.

yes all I did was unpluged the wiring harness going into the transmission just above the pan on the drivers side to disconnect the lockup feature. Why do you say that that wont do it?

Because that is for release of the clutch, not apply.

Im not sure, but you probably know more than me about transmissions, so youre probably right, however I do have it unpluged and it does not lock up. I have had it pluged up before and it did lockup then. But anyway... I just want to get the dumb thing fixed. Thanks for the info.

66novaht..

real simple,

If the governor is sticking from metal particals... it is coming from somewhere inside the tranny / converter . As stu points out the thimble filter should be used. Yet if there is enough trash in the system it will clogg the filter quickly

The unplugged wires do stop the lock up feature of the coverter

Thanks... do you think it would be worth the $ to have it flushed out, or should I just go ahead and rebuild it? It has over 100,000 miles on the transmission.
