We are trying to fix one at our shop and are having a heck of a time getting info about it.
Any PDFs, USMB links or anything else would be great!

apple-cored governor gear
failed/not hooked up vacuum modulator
Oh, and front diff run out of gear oil
those are the main problems with the 3at, other than being gutless.

Does it downshift manually?

the issue with the one in our shop is the customer is experiencing a "lack of power". I test drove it up a moderate hill at 25 mph and i had it floored. it didnt quickly accelerate or downshift, just slowly increased speed.
Sounds like a normal soob with an auto!

Vacuum modulators force downshifts, governors force upshifts. Usually if you unhook the vacuum line to the modulator, the tranny will do redline shifts, no matter what the throttle position is. If the modulator is stuck or failed, then it won't.
Also know that the 3at's were known for being gutless wonders. The "lack of power" could be normal.
