ok so I like to new conv. ..... on that note she still shifts not so good .... waiting too long to shift into 3rd and then into OD/ lock up ....... it seems to like to shift near 2700-2850 for some reason .....


we ( me and 97 Cummins ) adjusted the smaller allen head 2 turns out , and no other adjustments .... the 1-2 shift is firm and the 2-3 shift is better ... but all in all she needs to shift at lower RPM's ..... shift kit maybe ? ... I dont beleive I nee an entire valve body to solve this issue ...I have bombed many 727 toqrue flight transmissions with just a shoift kit but not sure if the pressures would work the exact same or gimmie the same results ???

any one know ?? with out spending more than 200 bucks I should be able to make it shift better I think... maybe

We need to figure out what pressures your at when your transmission is shifting.
Or you should call and talk to chuck at the power shop and see what he says.

Have you tried adjusting your tv cable? Mine was shifting very light and early, so I adjusted it about 1/4" and it after that it would hurt your neck and shift at about 2500rpm WOT. I had to move it back some...it only takes a very small adjustment to make a big difference.
