Th350
Detent cable disconnected
355 with big cam and 3.50 GN rear end
Vacuum at approx 14”

Car shifts fine in D. All gears. Was going from stop to 3rd when crossing the intersection but adjusted the modulator and it helped a lot. Problem is when I am going fast and tapping gears manually. It won’t shift into 3rd above 3000rpm. Ideal shift point is 5200 from 2nd to 3rd but when I tap it in the engine keeps reving up. Even at 3500 keeps reving.

Please help. Need to get it to the strip for a time before season end.

Not sure how to do them but that has never stopped me before. Was planning a visit to the transmission shop but I like to do things myself.

Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll look it up.
