[DML] A/T new question

Thanks for the response on the solenoid installation guys - I wanted to
double check my work while installing a rebuilt governor.  The solenoid
with the clear wires is on the passenger side of the car.


I now have a new question.  When I first installed the rebuilt governor
I took it for a drive and only had second gear (about 28mph at 2000rpms
with sluggish start).  I checked everything over and found I didn't have
a fuse in the A/T slot in the fusebox (oops) - and put one in.  I tried
it again and I then had first gear - yay  - and then, it didn't shift
into second when I expected it to.  If I get the car up to 35 or so and
let off the gas, then press down again, the car is basically in neutral
- the engine revs but no go.  I'm not sure if that's second or third


I'm going to run wires and set up LEDs in the cabin so I can tell what
the governor is trying to do, but I think this is a control problem, not
a mechanical one.  If I can mechanically drive in second gear with no
fuse in the fusebox, then I should be able to get into second if the
controller is working properly.


Does this scream out an obvious answer to anyone?


Any help appreciated.

It IS possible to switch the solenoid valve positions. Not something
you want to do however. The solenoid with the "clear" wires is
supposed to be the one nearest the shift linkage. Another way to say
it is the one that doesn't have the "clear" wires should be closest to
the plug. Hard to explain without a picture. You really should never
have to mess with them.
