[DML] Re: Situation with auto transmission computer -

When you "stomp" the pedal (actually you activate the WOT switch) the
WOT switch should force a downshift NOT the position of the lever.
That lever senses throttle position to modify the upshift points in
response to engine power. I have not been able to successfully disect
the alternator portion of the shift computer nor have I found one that
did not work correctly. BTW that alternator is a 3 phase device and
it's voltage output is varied by the RPM of the input shaft AND the
position of the lever. Maybe you will be able to find one at the show
in Gettysburg? Refer to G:01:02
