After doing some reading, I decided to adjust the tv cable. The end at the carb was rough so I just replaced it with a new cable. I probably need to get one of the geometry brackets to get it right. I found a wealth of information on the website It made me realize that the tv cable does a lot on these transmissions. I adjusted it and its ok for now. When it drive it shifts out ok. 1st to 2nd is pretty hard, but better than too soft. I still have my existing problem..............When I have the gear shift in 1st and take off, it shifts normally to 2nd, regardless if I'm just cruising or in the gas. I'm thinking about draining the new synthetic fluid out and putting regular Dextron III in it to rule that out.
