Re: [GFS] HI PERF TORQUE FLITE SHIFT POINT





Ed,
 
I used the high performance transmission weights in my 59 Sport Fury 361 Golden Commando when I was drag racing. Never checked low speed shift points,  but it held second gear about 15 MPH long than the normal shift point, under full throttle. I believe when I ordered the governor weight they told me it was standard equipment on all Plymouth Police cars. You probably know that if you leave in second gear and keep it floored it will automatically shift out into high gear. The weight just holds it about 15 MPH longer.

Hello Members
 
Question on the torqueflites that have the hi perf springs and weights in the governor
ie: 57/58 FURY,59 GOLDEN COMMANDO CARS,,,ADVENTURERS etc
 
According to the service manual the shift point at dead slow speeds ( traffic jam type of stuff) from 1st to 2nd is about 10MPH
 
Just wondering what it is for the hi perf governor??
 
THANKS TO ALL
ED ECKERSON
