Crosley pull the v-body and revisit the instructions. I believe the problem is there.

Not the shift valves , But with the detent regulator vavle or the control valve next to it.

IF the B&M kit has different springs ( Stronger) for the governor... put the original springs back in.

flushed out lines and torque converter
installed tranny
added type F fluid as recommended

Now in drive trans seems to shift very soon from first to 2nd and possibly a bit soon to 3rd.
Manually downshifting into 2nd works
Manually downshifting into 1st doesn't
starting off in 1st (manually) trans automatically shifts to 2nd
Also in any forward gear there is no engine braking seems to go into nuetral unless to accelerate
checked cable linkage
checked kickdown adjustment
vaccum modulator is new and so is rubber hose
in drive shifts are firm but too soon especially considering shift kit so not as firm as I would expect

BTW this is my first tranny rebuilb and my 3rd shift kit installation. ! was a th400 and 1 was a th375 never had any problems with either one.

Any ideas??
