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?:confused:

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.

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?

Big gray button yes. I have to use a tool to push it in. Pull the black plastic thingy toward the front of the rig.

Drive and adjust, now I can get enough speed to get across the highway at work to go home without having to drive through the median about a 1/2 mile in the wrong direction.

I got it and it seems to shift at about 15 mph and 28ish mph. It also seems to actually accelerate... after I adjusted, over adjusted, and adjusted it back. It does downshift (now) when I hit the pedal down, but only for about 1/2 to 3/4 of pedal travel, then it shifts back up... and bogs down again. Do I still not have it in the 'sweet' spot, or is that as good as an idiot (me) is gonna get it?

Just keep adjusting it till you get it "fine" tuned a liitle higher shift is better than lower. This cable is what sets the pressure in the unit and in most case's is what cause's these 700 to burn up.

sometimes a click or two on the cable will not raise the shift points much but will make the unit work and last way better .

I have set many of these 700's over the years and "fine" tuning that cable can make or break the unit. Take your time and move the cable out one click at a time till you find that sweet spot

Good luck

what if.. when the PO had it built, he put the gasser cable in instead of the diesel?

Tcc?

Could the TCC (torque converter clutch) cause the bogging down in 2nd? maybe a TPS throttle position "switch/sensor" adjustment would help?

good point diaric that would affect it big time

Lock up on the diesel trans should only lock-up in 3rd and 4th. Now if the p o had a gasser built for it then yes it could and will lock up in 2nd !!!!

With your left foot, lightly press on the brake after it shifts in to 2nd. Just far to turn your brake lights on(not to far as to apply the brakes ) and see if that helps with the bogg

Only other way is to drop the pan and look to see if there are two or three pressure switch's in the valve body . Diesel use only two.

Since I need to replace the ATF still (just running behind on repairs) I will try and get a pic, and hopefully you guys can see what your talking about, cause I have no idea what the pressure switches look like...

I had to actually put a small nut and bolt on the end of the part that hooks to the nub on the IP, i set it about 1/2 inch from the tip then adjusted the cable from there.
