You demonstrated that you have a Q-jet carb... The Q-jet linkage geometry is not correct for the TV cable.

You installed a trans from a junk yard and are surprised it does not operate properly? With no history of the trans , it may be stock or a DIY worked on it that may caused the erratic shifting.

What is your rear end gear ratio? IF it is a 3.73 or 4.10 gear , it may be spinning the governor too quickly , causing the early shifts if the trans came out of a car with 2.73 gear.

Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.
