Governor problems

Postby the12valvekid » Fri Jul 01, 2016 5:44 pm

I'm in desperate need of some help. Local builder built me a solid A518 for my truck, upgraded bands, clutches, shift kit 4.2:1 apply lever and some other goodies, the governor is sticking BAD, he did the best he could with the original used one and when I drove it it stuck some times and other times it didn't and shifted beautifully but I found a solid used one that ended up going into my trans with a sonnax replacement primary valve in it and when he drove it it wouldn't even shift with out letting off the throttle and getting back on to it. I have called a million places in search of a diesel governor with no luck. I just spent a few thousand on this and I'm thoroughly disappointed. If anyone could point me in the right direction or help me out I would very much appreciated it. -Matt
