Re: c4 governor?

I sell a lighter secondary piston spring, which will normally increase your full throttle shifts in drive 500-1000 RPMS.
Sometimes the secondary piston has to be lightened by drilling with a carbide bit, or you have to anneal the piston, drill & then quench it to reharden it.

Its a trial & error deal & you have to remove the extension housing to access the C-4 governor.
The cost of the spring is $15.00 postpaid to the lower 48.
