1984 700r4 shift problems

Had my trans rebuilt 8,000 miles ago w/131K miles. After rebuild, trans would not shift into 3rd until 35mph no matter how little throttle and trans wont downshift from 3rd to 2nd. Fluid level is good and looks clean. TV cable has been adjusted and checked many times - its very tight. Any suggestions as to ow i might resolved this or is new trans in order? Thanks.

TV/ThrottleValve or TV Plunger in Valvebody possibly sticking/binding in TV sleeve. Disconnect the TV cable at the Carb/Throttle Body, start Engine and pull the TV cable out fully & let it snap back a dozen or so times. Maybe trash/sediment in the Valve or the Sleeve is worn causing binding/sticking.
This is also a symptom of the TV cable set too tight.
