C-6 trans problems

I have a fox body Mustang w/ 460 C-6 4500 ATI stall reverse valve body (no trans brake), track only use and it has a flare between 1,2 and 2,3. The 1,2 is the worst, it hits rev limiter then shifts.
Does anyone have ideas and solutions?
Thanks

You could have a problem in the servo.
Perhaps the return spring is too strong and causes a delayed 1-2 and releases too quick before the direct clutch has applied.

Trans problem

How do I test for this and what would be the solution?

Remove the servo and look at the spring.
You may need a servo with a larger apply area.

A billet servo will help eliminate this problem. Also, check the band adjustment. It should be 1-1/4" turn's for corse thread, and 2 turns for fine thread. Cook's Racing Automatics.

trans

I spoke to PA trans today and they thought the 1,2 flare might be metal shavings in valvebody. Recomended to remove and flush, then test. the 2,3 flare they thought was servo.
I would really like to get through this summer with out having to go through it, I was planning on doing this over the winter and adding a transbreak. The budget is thin for the summer.
What would happen running it like this or tring to flush the valvebody? Just wondering the down side?
Thanks

This is about a 30 min. job. If your not familiar with valve bodies, make sure you make a scribe mark were there are any ball's. Wash out with a spray carb cleaner then air check the valves for proper movement.

It's a C6. Only one thread.


Torque adjuster to 10 foot pounds, back off 1 full turn.
