    AOD Governors?

    Is there anyplace or way to get a governor that won't shift till about 5200rpm in my AOD?

    The governor from a mustang AOD should take care of the problem.

        'stang AOD governors are like 4800 rpm, the Transgo one is I think 5200 or thereabouts.

        I actually need to install my HO governor. Right now it does a 1-2 at 4150, and a 2-3 at like 3700 rpm, which really sucks. Annoyingly, I have the part i, just need to find the time to install it.

          The Trans Go hi-rev governor is listed for 5500 rpm shiftpoints. With my wide ratio gears the shift points get multiplied so im just using the regular stang governor, it'll still wring out to 6k if i let it

            I usually end up holding it in first till 5200 and it works out better if I hold it in second till about 5500.

            Before I rebuilt my tranny it used to glitch and hold first untill like 7grand lol :coocoo:

            I replaced the gorvernor when I did the rebuild and now it shits as such; 1-2 @ 4900-5000, 2-3 @ 4800-4900, 3-4 @ 4700. I replaced it with a new Ford Crown Vic governor so I guess they updated them to perform better.

                I fiddled with the TV cable on mine some and now it shifts around 4700. Big improvement over how it acted before.

                  Yeah increasing the trans pressure will do that. Another better way to do it is to mount the cable farther out from the pivot point so that the high pressure is higher but the regular driving pressure is still good.
