  • Transmission / Overdrive: 3 Speed Automatic Transmission Shift '58 and Later

    The transmission starts off in second gear but I do not feel it shift for higher speeds. My understanding is there is a coordination between the throttle control rod at the carb and the transmission pressure rod at the transmission thus facilitating a shift to the higher gear. Can someone shed light as to how to adjust these two? I've read the book but...Chet

      Plug a pressure gauge into the trans and start shortening the TV rod between trans and bell crank. i used taxi spec for a later , firmer shift. check manual for plug location for gauge. Luck Doofus

        When you are out on the road, can you floor the accelerator and feel it downshift? My 60 sometimes feels like it did not shift to third, but downshifts when I floor it.
