Most probably the rubber seals at the front unit coupling are hard like glass and no more sealing, therefore the transmission is hunting between 3 and 4. There is only one cure: overhaul the transmission. With so few miles, I would just replace the seals and clutches, just the friction plates, not the steel plates. As I suppose you have no access to the Brougham chapter, you cannot see how I overhauled a '57 transmission which, with the exception of some details, is very similar to your own one.

I'M not noticing any leaks. I did adjust the passing gear mechanical kick down. Could this have any thing to do with the mechanical Kick down adjustment?

The sole question I may have: did you adjust that T/V rod corrctly?
