Gyromatic: no 1-2 upshift, but 3-4 fine

Recommended Posts

I have been all over the forum looking for an answer but haven't found it.  My Traveler shifted fine and so does my '47 DeSoto.  The car I am working on now is a '49 Gyromatic Dodge.  I can't get the tranny/fluid drive combo to cooperate in the one to two upshift in the shifter's upper right position.  The 3-4 upshift if fine, works smoothly, no clunking up or down.

 

Why would one work and the other not?  Fluid levels are fine.

 

Thanks for any suggestions.

Last night it was resolved.  Electrical contacts in the governor were the culprit. Thanks for adding this info.  Every bit helps.
