    ^^^^^ Mikebee is correct you can get governor parts from A&A for different up-shifts. Throttle pressure does the job for normal driving keeping it street friendly.

    Ordered myself a set of 5400 weights yesterday from A&A. You can fine tune the shift points with the throttle valve (kickdown) adjustment and pump press adjustment on the valve body, and you can change the 1-2 shift valve spring so the 1-2 shift matches the 2-3 shift. If you google it there are several articles.

      I put in the 5400 rpm governor when I rebuilt my 727. (Wish I went went with the 6,000 instead)

      They are easy to install when doing a rebuild, and takes a little time to fine tune the shifts.

      If you order from A&A, they will let you try a few springs to get it set, just return what you don't use.

      good info. I had a my ex partners son build my 727. It acts like its not even using low gear, as far as feeling it shift to second. It shifts to 3rd at about where a stocker would hit second, "20 ft?". total new rebuild bumper to bumper, still working bugs out. supposed to be a fully auto. w/ manual shift for the dragstrip , w/ low band apply . sure not interested in laying under the dam car anymore. hard to set the aftermarket shift linkage by my self, need to re check it.-----all advise welcome.

      Get in the factory service manual and check the throttle valve linkage from the carb to the accelerator lever on the transmission. That can affect where it shifts during regular driving.
