Hi guys,
I just started to remove things from the tranny, to change some leaking gaskets... And at the govenor housing i found this :



Is this the transbrake-solenoid ?? or what, and the sleeve look quite modifyed too, is that correct ?

(I shift the tranny through an manual valvehouse)

Thanks!

That is a transbrake solenoid. The governor has been modified to act as the brake valve. The gear is ground down to keep it from spinning on the output shaft. Looks like a variation of a GER setup. Somewhat troublesone when used as a brake....

Thank for the information Chazmac,
How does is work then... is the solenoid rod pushing the sleeve, or does it get magnetic and pulling ? (iv got no experience on this kinda stuff)

Okay... think i got the answer...
The oil-pressure is holding the sleeve shaft against the solenoid, and when activating the transbrake the solenoid pushes the shaft in... making the oil change direction. Could that be right... ?!
