Is the governor used in the Fairbanks kit? Or is it eliminated?

Vacuum modulator used or removed?

My guess is the governor circuit is flooded and the trans will not bump back to first like it should. This happens in a TransGo kit install about 2 out of 10 times.

A holes drilled into the governor circuit may help. About .065 size hole is a good size to start. Valve body removal is needed. Drill the hole in the circuit at the rear of the v-body is easiest
governor is used with springs to hold wide open the modulator is there but no vac to it . the instruction say to leave modulator in but not use vac to it. however it does give an option to remove it and use a plud to hold the valve.,but the instruction say not to use the plug if using the manual valve body option
