That should just about be IT. This thing is quite aggressive, but will play nice when I'm just putting around. Had a 'no 4th' deal at first, but went heavier on weight and spring in the governor, then played with the TV adj. and all is well. Except one last thing:
I have a notchy 2-3 shift in D3. This appears to subside when in D4, (over run off..?) I say notchy meaning that I think the 2-4 band isn't releasing quick enough when the 3-4 clutch comes on. It kind of noses over quickly then immediately pops into 3rd. Imagine your head nodding forward-back real quick but not violently. Most noticeable at light throttle.
Definitely need to get this smoothed out before I get happier with the throttle.
The servos I have, furnished a rather heavy red return spring.
Do I need to get more 3rd oil into the servo bore to force off the big servos quicker? Any other things to check?
Am I barking up the right tree? Any thoughts or prayers?

couple of items;
describe the "closed orifice" in the input drum.
The billet 2-4 servo....... If it is the large billet style servo , replacing the OEM release spring with a t-400 coasting band spring will increase the release speed of the 2-4 band.
It may be a stiffer spring than the provided one.. perhaps not.
What is the clearance set to for the 2-4 servo? I set at 1/8 inch movement of the servo cover
Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.
Input drum, (pic-arrow) JB weld from the inside.
2-4 servo, using the Superior K012 & K034... return spring is pretty darn heavy. Could try the TH400 spring.
2-4 servo is .120"- I used a dial indicator, depressing cover minus o-ring with clip in place.
Thanks for the reply.
A thread bump...
I still would like to 'clean up' the 2-3 shift in this trans. I've done some tinkering and it stays consistently -well, notchy. Different 2-4 servos, release springs have been tried, 2-4 band preload is good.
It's just a toy for me and not a daily driver, but I really would like to get the upper hand on this thing.
I found a product from Sonnax. The links should give you the info for all the trans enthusiasts out there. I *think* this part will do the trick based on my seat 'o' the pants feel of the 2-4 band release and 3-4 clutch application NOT being synchronized in my trans...
Give these links a look. Has anybody used this part?
