Ok. We've got to test it with it acting up. Put your gauge on the governor pressure tap. (see diagram). Governor pressure should build very close to 1 psi for every mph you are traveling. Note exactly what the governor pressure does as you accelerate from a stop and then what it does when you slow down. It should go back to 0. If it stays up when you stop it will hold in a higher gear.
