The geometry on the TV cable is the most important issue with this transmission for proper shifting as well as the longevity of the unit. The cable has a required length of travel from idle to full throttle. The linkage on your carburetor which controls the TV cable must have the stroke to accomplish this. Bowtie Overdrive has a link on their website that describes what this stroke-length should be and how to properly set up the TV cable. The only other possible cause I can think of would be the governor, but I think that's only a remote possibility. When you Pick-a-Part you take your chances, IMO
