700R4 TV cable to tight

Hi all,

Just got the tranny back in the 6.2, all the oil and new cooler, no leaks. I went to install the TV cable and it was a really tight fit to the IP? is there any way to adjust it? it goes up to 2000 RPM and still no shifting?

Are you using the original TV cable?

Gas and Diesel are different

More info I found

Step 5 (Diesel Engines Only)
Adjustments of the TV Cable on a diesel engine.
a. Adjustments are made with the engine off. If equipped with cruise control, remove the control rod.
b. Disconnect the TV Cable end from the throttle lever.
c. Loosen the locknut on the pump rod and shorten several turns.
d. Turn throttle lever to WOT and tighten the pump rod locknut.
e. Lengthen pump rod until injection pump lever contacts the full throttle stop.
f. Release the throttle lever and tighten the pump rod locknut.
g. Remove pump rod from the throttle lever.
h. Reconnect the TV Cable end to the throttle lever.
i. Press in the Adjust Tab and move Slider as shown in Figure 3.
j. Release the tab and rotate the throttle lever to WOT and the cable will self adjust itself as evidenced by a few audible clicks. Release the throttle lever and check the cable for any signs of binding or sticking.
k. Reconnect the pump rod and cruise control throttle rod, if equipped.
l. If equipped with cruise control, adjust servo throttle rod to minimum slack.
m. Road test the vehicle. Under moderate acceleration your shift points should be close to the following:
1-2…………………20 MPH
2-3…………………28-32 MPH
3-4…………………42-45 MPH
n. If the cable is adjusted too loosely your transmission will exhibit soft, stacked shifts (not spread out). DO NOT CONTINUE DRIVING VEHICLE IF THIS HAPPENS! Immediately readjust cable.

Mine doesn't have it either, I would pay more attention to this part

. Press in the Adjust Tab and move Slider as shown in Figure 3.
j. Release the tab and rotate the throttle lever to WOT and the cable will self adjust itself as evidenced by a few audible clicks. Release the throttle lever and check the cable for any signs of binding or sticking.

WOT stands for wide open throttle?

Okay then let me make sure I understand this correctly:

I press the adjustment tab that looks like a D shaped metal, push the slider all the way towards the firewall, release the tab and then kick the gas pedal all the way down and the cable should ratchet its self towards the radiator correct
