Tentatively, I am planning on going to SF this year.
right now the plan is go a week early and help scott with some stuff around the shop and maybe build, repair a few AOD transmission for him.
I will have all my tools, so I can do some minor AOD repairs and/or install a few shift kits for other people, BUT you gotta let me know ahead of time what you want done so I can order the parts and schedule the time for it.

Again... this all just in the planning stages, it could fall apart real quick.
I have been out of work for over a year, so my job search takes priority.
Money is short and the wife and I go on vacation 3 weeks after I would get back.

If you're coming up, I might be interested in having something done with the Mark VII. It needs a shift kit, and its got that screwed up 4-3 downshift I've talked to you about before.

my mark VII clunks out of overdrive, and if you run it real hard, it wont shift into overdrive till you slow down and go thru the gears again

the shift improver kit from trans-go along with properly adjusting the TV pressure (with a gauge) should solve the problems on both cars.

Scott... my CV does something similar and I found the TV cable is binding internally.
might need to lube your cable, if not replace it.

Im definitely interested - but do you really want to work during scottfest??

Im interested in a mild shift kit, or at least having my TV pressure set by a pro.
I can paypal you money for the shift kit if that works for you. My pan has a drain plug, does that get me a discount? :D

oh, and would you have a source for the HO governer? My Mark seems to have the lopo one, it shifts at 4300 WOT. If you'd prefer, I can paypal you some bucks to pick up the stuff, or tell me what to get and I'll get it. I might be able to get the Mark up there a week beforehand, or maybe I could drop you guys some cash to just come down here and pick it up for me.

that was kinda the point of making the post.... see what the interest was and what kind of work needed to be done.

I have got the normal shift improver installation down to about 2-3 hrs, which includes setting the TV pressure afterwards.
I haven't installed an HP shift kit, so I am not sure what's involved or how long it would take.

swapping govenors is a tad more involved, since the driveshaft and tail shaft housing have to come off.
sometimes you can squeak the tail shaft housing by with the exhaust installed, sometimes not.

Yes... I have a source for HO govenors.
