Newly rebuilt C4, (1973 model case); new PA 6 pinion planetary, hardened input shaft, new PA transbrake valve body, 6 clutch pack in front and 5 in rear, PA Pro shift servo and pro pump.
Problem: I have an electric shifter with an RPM switch set at 6800.

Everything seems to be operating fine, except the 1-2 shift happens exactly at 7200 RPM instead od 6800. The 2-3 shift hits exactly at 6800 with a 300 RPM flare.

If the shift point is set to 6000, the 1-2 shift happens at 6400 ant the 2-3 shift at 6000? If the shift point is set to 7000, the 1-2 happesn at 7400 and the 2-3 at 7000.

Car is very consistant in the 60' and the 1-2 shift is the same EVERY time.
Tranny with the new valve body now has 60 1/4 mile runs.
Any thoughts, there's not much left to change except the housing.

Thanks

my opinion is that the engine climbs faster in 1st therefore the lag between seeing the chip & completing the shiift is greater than the 2-3. jmho. i have found it slightly on my pg equipped car, too. (not the 2-3 problem.)
