Vacuum modulator is there to blow off pressure in reverse. Reverse pressure can go over 300 if a aluminum plug is installed in place of the vacuum modulaotor

Sounds like this kit is similar to TransGo. The hole in the governor circuit should fix the problem. The hole plows off some pressure to allow the down shift to first
Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.
