Has anyone been able to get this transmission to downshift dependably . My mechanic would like to just not deal with this problem. Chalking it up to poor design. He has been great so far, just can't wrap my head head around this not working in my period correct 57 with a 4 barrel carb.

I don't recall ever having heard that there was that much of a problem with downshifting a powerglide. Its only a two speed ( low and high) so its not complex. Are you refering to the kickdown? while driving or manually shifting to low?

The problem may lie in the lever from the carb to the detent (passing gear). You should try shorting up on the rod. :anim_25: bowtie-trifive :gba:

Havent had problems downshifting when driving normally, getting the PG to down shift when already in 2nd gear is just down to adjustments
