72 450 SL , soft flare like shift to 3rd ??
I have a soft shift into 3rd, almost like a flare. On my 84 300SD I can adjust the vacuum modulator to soften or firm up the shift. Does this car 72 450, have the same deal, can I adjust the firmness of the shift via an outside adjustment. I am planning on putting her up on ramps tomorrow to take a look

Yes you can adjust the modulator valve, but it's a good idea to check your vacuum system for leaks first.............Dan

My vacuum system is tight and so i got under there and it looks nothing like my SD. DOubt I will be adjusting anything unless someone can post the DIY 1-2-3-4's
