Transmission isnt' switching to second. Likely a worn governor gear i'm assuming from research on the net.

I believe i've located the governor gear housing.. but how do I get the top off?
Is that a snap ring? it's hard to see down in there? I was expecting a clip like the one that usually keeps a brake reservior lid on some cars.

I noticed a bolt near it.. but i'm guessing it's a snap ring? Also anyone have
any info on a part number and where to get the gear?

You've definitely provided some clarity.

I'll see if I have some snap ring pliers, and clean the area. hopefully
I can see the holes for the snap ring. ( i'm assuming all snap rings
have them?)

I was able to get my other hand down there by going near the firewall,
but I didnt' want to "try to hard" not being sure of what I wasn't seeing.
cleaning the thing was an excellent suggestion, and duh on me for not
thinking of it.

Thanks for your help! I REALLY appreciate it!

Going to try to use some vice grips to turn the screw driver to get it to bite.

I was temptd to try to drill a hole in it to get it out, and replace it,
but I'm going to get some more screw drivers.

accidently broke a nipple off the fuel filter too lol

Well the deed is done. Got the governor gear for $4 from that place suggested online. (they had a local dealer). Ordered the cap and seal from that discount dealership recommended here at NF. $15 bucks total i think.

The new cap is a revision, and they made the circle on top a flat surface, not rounded edges like the old cap, so this one should be a LOT easier to grab and remove.

Thanks everyone!
