700r4 shifting question

Hi all. I'm Aaron and I'm new. (totally forgot that on my first thread)
So I have a question on my transmission. the TV cable appears to be pushed all the way back, and it shifts into 2nd at about 10 mph and 3rd by 20mph.

Is that normal, or is that why I have 'quick' accelleration to 10 mph and it dogs until about 50 mph?

Yes I do know that as a 6.2 NA it will be slow, but we're talking I could almost run faster once it shifts into 2nd.
Thanks for your thoughts.

That is way to early on the shift points.

You say the cable is all the way out . Do you mean pulled away from the pump (outer part of the cable ).

Can you see where it hooks to the pump, is that on and moves free??

have you tried to adjust it will it go out any more ??

do the shift points raise when you step down on the pedal ?

So pictures are done. is there supposed to be 'alot' of slack in that cable? I can almost wrap it around a finger.

and are these the pics I was supposed to take? or do I not know what i'm looking for?

Yes there is a lot of slack on these.
It appears that the adjustment is all the way in. Mine is out about five clicks.

try to release the lock tab and pull the cable outward

Have you done anything to the truck or did it just happen ?

cable broken or unhooked

Previous owner 'rebuilt' it about 40k ago, and I've had it for about 60 mi now. If its wrong, it would not suprise me if its been that way for a while. The cable does appear to still be attached at both ends.

sls (and everyone else) which direction is out? reducing cable length, or increasing it? and thats done with that big gray button right?
