What vaccumm modulator do you have? The black stripe one holds the shifts the longest.

Modulator and kickdown adjustments only go so far.

I've known other people lighten the secondary governor weight or:

I think I'd either want to get a few spares to play with or ask someone that has done this to help, as I assume it would be a lot of trial and error.

good luck, post pics if you go that route
