    If you mean the downshift mechanism, I think you've just found the problem. There is no detent for 700R4's, I gather, and they used this thing called a TV cable ... search for same, and I betcha you'll find good stuff.

    http://www.purplesagetradingpost.com/sumner/techinfo/700R4p1.html

    is an example.

    NB: I have no 700's, only TH350's and 400's, and have no first-hand experience with the newfangled variety :)

    Do you mean the shift detents? The TV cable is strictly for valve body pressure (which changes the shift points aka "kickdown") but the detents are for manual gear selection. Which one are you needing help with?

    If it is the 87 700r, then adjust the cable on the tb (in or out) so the trans shifts into 4th at 55mph, this is what my brother and I did on his truck, told to use by a very reputable transmision gooru. This was about 3 yrs ago, my brother drives his truck like he stole it, on the street or in a mud hole.
