Sounds like you're stuck in 2nd maybe? Are you sure you're grabbing 3rd at 35mph? I had this happen on a '79 F-250 with a C6 and had a bad vacuum modulator. You're right on the 2200 RPM guess. Calcs can be done here:
"Sounds like you're stuck in 2nd maybe?"
That's what I thought when my wife told me about it. (The '89 is her Bronco)
No such luck. It's a firm shift, with noticable RPM change...only it's at 35mph.
Night and day compared to the 5.0L and E4OD in the '94.
How accurate is your tach as I need to find out how accurate mine is. I run a 351 with ac6 355 gears and 35 tires and when I do 60mph my tach says 2800 and I know Iam in 3rd as I have a shift kit the trans is only aprox 2 years old.
It's a Custom trim level, so no stock tach. Just going by ears and feel. Not in the mood to install an aftermarket just so I can see my 351W spinning like a hamster on crank. It'll probably never have to go over 45 when we move to Maine anyways.
