    I dropped some stuff in your first post. The detent cable is easy to set. There's a big D shaped button on it where it goes into the bracket. Push down on the button until you can move it. Pull it back so its too far back, then grab the throttle all the way open, now let go of the D, that will get you in the ball park. Too far back will make early shifts and quicker kickdowns. To far forward will make longer shifts and slower kickdowns.

    He won't have it because he has a 700R4, you've got that kickdown cable we talked about.
