Well extending the pivot point off the end of the output shaft isn't good, nor is it being an aluminum piece... I'd use what the factory heck cats use.....

Congrats out to my friend David Horton for winning the 23 NMCA NSS points title. They had there final race this weekend and when the smoke settled he won. His trusty 65 Plymouth "The Battling Belvedere" took home the trophy. David is a long time racer and is pretty well known around the Carolinas as a tough out anytime he pulls to the line. Good job David.

I agree. And people will want to kill me but I'd also remove the "43" if I owned it. No disrespect to the King, it's just not for me.

I'd also like the no sticker look. But I would have a custom wrap made that was just thousands of richard petty autographs to put on the car so people wouldn't mistake the lineage....

I have used them in a Geo Metro. As said earlier they might require some seconds of driving at speed to settle in. They also work best on tall skinny tires and are not recommended for wide low profile tires.
There are good products for over the road trucks which use mercury or balls in oil, in a ring, between the hub and wheel.

Military members severely lack detailed manuals for F-35s.

sample quote

Without necessary and complete technical data from Lockheed Martin and its subcontractors, repair times have lagged. When the F-35 program began, GAO said, the Pentagon thought it would be more cost-effective to have contractors handle the bulk of the jet’s sustainment. As a result, the Pentagon didn’t require Lockheed to hand over the technical data that would allow the military to “organically” handle maintenance itself.

Air Force Secretary Frank Kendall has repeatedly criticized that decision, earlier this year calling it “a serious mistake” the service won’t repeat on its sixth-generation Next Generation Air Dominance fighter.

The acquisition philosophy in vogue at the time of the F-35 program’s launch two decades ago, dubbed Total System Performance, meant the contractor on the program would own it for the system’s entire life cycle, Kendall said during a May breakfast with reporters.
This creates “a perpetual monopoly,” Kendall explained, and amounts to “acquisition malpractice” on the F-35.
Officials at an unidentified depot told GAO that maintenance manuals for some key parts are “ambiguous and rarely are detailed enough for depot personnel to make the repair.”

“As a result, depot personnel not only cannot fix the part, but they cannot learn and understand how to fix the part,” the watchdog wrote.

The training process for service members to maintain the F-35 is also lacking, GAO said. Maintainers told GAO they mainly learned how to fix the jet while on the job. Initial Lockheed Martin-led training mainly relied on PowerPoint slides in a classroom, with limited hands-on lessons, GAO said.
Training personnel acknowledged to GAO the maintenance training is “poor and inadequate,” adding that because Lockheed Martin runs the training, the firm controls what information is presented to maintainers.

“Since so much of the technical data used to maintain the aircraft is proprietary and unavailable to the military services, trainers in the military services cannot develop effective training programs for maintainers,” GAO wrote.

The situation differs considerably from F-15 and F-16 maintenance, which includes detailed manuals spelling out how the systems operate that allow maintainers to troubleshoot nagging problems.

Although this wasn't all that long ago, the increased use of cameras almost everywhere nowadays helps so much in these cases.

As soon as I let off the gas and coast the " desired" pressure follows the speed I am going. Then the trans tries to meet the "desired" pressure the computer wants to see.
If the actual actually crosses 100 psi then I get a CEL for "gov pressure high". It seems to drive fine though.
When I monitor the voltage of the governor pressure, it goes to 1.46v at 33 mph and jumps to 3.46 volts, skipping the "2.-xx" volt range completely.
I have another computer (actually the original one from this Durango) that I have had on the shelf for a while, I tried plugging it in as a "substitute known good part" step and it does exactly the same. I have likewise subbed in a known good TPS being that I can duplicate it very reliably just by driving and crossing 34 mph, and no change there either
.that "126.8" psi desired seems to be some kind of a default reading.

Now my 96 Dakota also has a 46re and does not act like that I drove that one and monitored the scanner just like I do in the Durango, just for comparison. Both are stone, dead stock, no mods. No chip, no performance tube or anything.

Drive your Dakota again and let me know what the actual gov psi does once it gets in to third then OD .
I’m betting the gov pressure will rise quickly to 120+ in OD.

Probably a good indication that if you ran the formula for hood scoop size vs engine demand you'd find the scoop is too big and creating excessive drag. Thankfully it didn't damage the windshield tho.
