    I have a 1991 K5, into which I recently installed a (used but good condition 700-a buddy had it in his truck prior) 700. Everything seems to be working fine, save for the fact that the thing refuses to kick down. Where do I begin to look to take care of this? Kind of a pain on highway trips. Thanks!

    Sounds like a T.V. cable adjustment problem to me. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Does TV adjustment affect kickdown? I have adjusted the TV cable multiple times hoping this would remedy the problem, with the only effect being varying shift points/firmness. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    To adjust it there should be a cable running up to the intake and then onto the throttle linkage. There should be a bracket mounted to the intake with a plastic adjuster running through it. Push in on the square button to release the cable and then move it forward or backward accordingly. Usually the cable sticks out 1/4 of an inch. Its better to be to loose than to tight. To see if you have it adjusted right, start off slowly and as soon as it shifts to 2 on its own, floor it and it should go back to first immedietly.
