hesitation and slippage

Okay so the other day I installed the flat spot fix...but I was also having shifting problems and now I have more problems. I'm not sure what they are from or what they are. But until I installed the flat spot fix I never had this problem but I think it may be the tranny also. Here is what's happening...As I shift 1-3rd I have no problems. When I shift into fourth as I top it out it hesitates but it feels like it may be the tranny but I have never had any problems with the tranny. And I think that it's due to the vent tube nozzle I installed. As I shift into fifth the hesitation gets worse. It's like it is sputtering...Has anyone else experienced something like this? I don't think it's the tranny because it only happens at the top of fourth and fifth. Any suggestions or ideas would be helpful...TIA mike

Re: hesitation and slippage

Does the direction of the taper on the flat spot fix matter? Maybe your accelerator cable is not tight enough and your secondary isn't opening. 5th gear switch or vacuum advance on the disty?

Well I'm not sure if the direction matters or not so what I did was just angled the opening towards the butterfly. And it did feel like the valve wasn't closing the whole way...I'll have to look into it...thanks. mike

Re: hesitation and slippage

the opening of the "flat spot" tube is tapered, when installed, the tapered part should be parallel to the ground, sounds like you have it in backwards, dont know if it matters or not, but I would try rotating it
