To get that bangin' 1-2 shift with a late 60's-early 70's THM-400, you just need brass ba!!s and a fixed foot! Put it in 1st range, launch it, keep foot on the floor and hang on. It will wind up, and just when you think you've let it go too long....BAM!! It will shift to 2nd on its own...forced upshift by the overspeed limiter. And when that type of shift occurs, there is NO slippage of the clutches. It will get a bit squirrley (fishtail); but once under control just upshift to Drive and let it do the shifting.

Whether you want to do that with a 40 year-old tranny, or not, is up to you. But those 400's are nearly bulletproof.
