    This is for the old timers in this group: Will replacing the solenoid and
    governor on a 1949 Chrysler Windsor with Fluid Drive help it shift like it
    is supposed to? All other things check out fine, the wiring and the fluid
    level in the torque converter. The problem is: If I take my foot off the
    gas pedal and let the transmission do its thing, a violent, loud clunk
    occurs. If I push in the clutch, it merely clicks and shifts smoothly. Any
    ideas about this? Also, sometimes the transmission does not downshift when
    coming to a stop without me pushing the clutch in to force it to drop to
    third from fourth. Am I on the right track with the solenoid/governor
    problem? Any ideas would be appreciated.
