my thoughts are to pull the valve body...suspect the tv valve to be stuck.. Another symptom i registraded that may help to investigation is that just before i parked the car (when the problem started) i was driving in 4-gear and i tried to downshift (kickdown) With no response... What do you think ?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
it does. I also pulled the pan to check that the plunger responded to the cabel pull. But i may suspect that the tv valve is stuck, what do you think?
UK Auto Mechanic: tim's auto repair, mechanic replied 1 year ago

1-first..pull out that governor again..make sure that when you shake it that the valve in the governor is moving..it may have debris in the governor valve

2-

1-Disconnect the tv cable from the throttle body/carb.

2-jack up the rear of the car/truck and put the car on jack stand[be sure the rear wheels are off the ground

3-start the engine and put the shifter in 1/low

4-give it throttle then shift to 2nd,3rd and the od

5-it isn’t going to want to shift to 3rd and od,but it will ,just give it more throttle[be careful not to get the car/truck hot]if it doesn’t go the first time,start the procedure over

6-after it shifts to od,,stop,put the shifter in od and then give it throttle so that it shifts automaticly

7-then install and adjust the detent/tv cable

if it still isnt shifting out of first when you do this,,then yes,,i would think it has a valve sticking in the valve body,,in which you may neeed to remove the valve body and clean it out

thanks
