Unhappy Turbo 400 not shifting soon enough

Hi all,

I have a 462 big block chevy, big cam stock exhaust with a turbo 400 in a 1959 Cadillac.

The tranny doesn't seem to shift soon enough.

I backed the adjustment screw almost all the way out on the vacuum modulator and this helped a little but it still doesn't seem to shift soon enough.

Any ideas?

Mike

Check your governor to make sure it isn't sticking.

We had that problem withe the 400 in my friend's '41 Willys pickup and played with the governor springs to fix it. As I recall, the shift kit we got has a set of different springs so we could tune it just like an ignition distributor mechanical advance. Call TCI, B&M or one of those outfits and I'll bet they set you up with what you need before you can say "boy howdy!"
