Jay Broader called me and talked for a while about this problem. He wanted to send me a new governor. I would have had to take the tailshaft off the transmission to change it. I don't have any leaks, it works great other than the passing gear thing so I declined his offer. I ain't touching it. I'd rather shift it myself than take a chance of it popping back into 2nd gear doing over a 100mph. When racing my buddy the other day we were over 100 mph and I was still in 2nd. Problem was I needed third gear around 90 mph. Jay said the only way to fix it with reliability was to change the governor. Thanks for the responces guys. Jim PS When Jay built the transmission for me he installed the parts to make a drag racer out of the car. I went to a higher rear gear and lower rpm stall converter later to turn it into a show/cruiser car that got gas mileage. It's my fault it's got the wrong governor for the application.
