    How do you know exactly when this cable is adjusted just right. On the 700R4 how much should you feel the shifting.When I adjusted it by the book it revs high and shifts hard. when I move the cable out Im affraid that its slipping and I can barley feel the shift points and it shifts real quick at slow speeds. however it holds the shift a little bit longer when I get on it. Whats the worse of the two adjustments, to soft of shift or to hard (high rev). My tranny is in good shape and I dont want to burn it up. thanks in advance

    You need to find a happy medium. Both too high and too low are no good. Too high and it'll bang into gear and destroy it. Too low and insufficient line pressure will overheat it. Keep playing with it a little at a time.

    <font color=purple> Just kep tweaking it a bit at a time .....if you still don't feel it's right, go to your local tranny shop and they should adjust it for you for nothing .

    I like 700r4s a little on the soft side. You should not feel a jerk when they shift under normal to moderate acceleration. Just a nice smooth progression up the gear range. With no jerks(too hard) or slippage(too soft) between gears.When you get it to where you can just feel the shift points its pretty close. Mine goes through 1st and 2nd gears real fast under normal acceleration.They are designed from the factory to be a very smooth transmition.
    Here is some more info on the TV cable/valve:<A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.tvmadeez.com/what_does_the_t.htm>http://www.tvmadeez.com/what_does_the_t.htm</A>
