My trans shifts into 3rd later than I would like. I cruise around town at 40mph with a light foot and I’m still in second gear. Somewhere just over 45mph it finally drops into third. Given the speed limits on the roads around town I would rather be in third.

Can this be adjusted somehow?

Thanks
Paul

If you pull the vacuum hose off of the modulator on the side of the trans, there is a small slot screw inside the vacuum nipple. You can turn it to change the rpm of the shift points for sooner or later shifts. I forget which way to turn it to make it shift earlier....you'll have to do trial and error. Try a half turn at a time. Very easy to do.
