th350 stuck in first

my dad just rebuilt my th350 and added a b&m shift kit, it works in park, nuetral, reverse, and drive, only it wont come out of first gear... cant figure out why, he thinks the modulator is ok, but we are going to try another one, how much vacuum do they need to work? i think i only have around 5lbs of vacuum...

You are sure your vacuum hoses are tight? i had to run a new hose to get mine to work.

I had this problem with my Firebird. My detent cable was stuck, making the tranny think that the engine was at WOT. It wasn't until I got up around 45 mph in first that it finally shifted to second, leading me to the detent. I replaced it and had no problems.
