[DML] Re: Automatic transmission shifting erratically...



I had about ten Governors to fix so far and believe me - even
if you have a new one or a lately fixed one - NOBODY can
guarantee you that this thing is going to work for the next 
xx years.

The solder joints on these two PCB's inside the governor
fail very often which causes that erratic behaviour.

Good thing is - they are cheap to fix. 

I heared of several different projects where people
wanted to replace these governors. what happened to them ?

I bet most of them learned that it isn't simple to make 
sure that this thing won't shift down from third to second 
or first at high speeds. It sounds easy, but it isn't.

Fred - have your governor tested !

Elvis & 6548 (5 speed :-))
