Crosley the pan actually holds the one governor tube up in place.

oldschool hero You could have knocked the modulator valve hose loose or damaged it in some way and restricting the vacuum pressure needed to make it shift.
When the valve isn't working you have to really wind it up to shift out of low gear.

OK here's the skinny , i was driving this car and hit a frost boil and the tranny didn't want 2 shift correctly after that .You had to floor it to shift out of 1 st but as soon as you backed off the gas it would shift down a gear .I found out later it had been doing this before , only not as bad . So we changed oil & filter and no difference, but i noticed one of the pipes coming out of the valve body was loose , there are no nuts to tighten these pipes so i'm thinking it's a press fit . All wiring seems ok , i'm just thinking if this is a pressure line perhaps this is the problem . Sorry if this has been asked before any help greatly appreciated .Later Bake
