  • 9-Coil Light Wire Spring for 4-Cylinder or Turbo
  • 6-Coil Heavy Wire Spring for V6
  • Washers (2)
  • Bolt null 1

Complaint:

  • 2nd Gear starts
  • No kickdown
  • No upshifts
  • Repeated governor hang-up

Cause:

Sticking primary weights.


Correction:

This governor bracket and spring assists the return of the primary weight.

A common aftermarket fix is to install a spring inside the governor body. This approach often fails because the spring jams in the bore. The Sonnax governor bracket and spring kit 32204-03K is designed so the spring is outside the governor body, safely returning the governor valve to the at-rest position at stops.

  • The Sonnax kit is designed to return the primary weight to the at-rest position.
  • Two return springs are provided, one for 4-cylinder or turbo, and one for 6-cylinder applications.
  • The bracket and spring can be installed with the transmission in the vehicle.
  • The use of this governor bracket and return spring will slightly increase shift timing.
NOTE:

If weight has a through bore, use the 9-coil light spring, not the heavy spring. It is recommended to use a PTFE seal ring since cast-iron rings can contaminate governor.
