700r4 cable questions

I have just rebuilt the 700r4 in my 1930 sedan and it seams to work great. I want to keep it running for a while and want to ask a question about the adjustment of the TV cable.
When you pull on the TV cable and watch the lever at the end of the cable, (pan off and valve body exposed) actually touch the TV valve, is this the correct position of the cable?
I had the pan off and adjusted the cable so that the lever atached to the end of the cable (in the pan) just barely touched the TV valve when the throttle was in idle position. It looks like if I give it full throttle it will pull the cable through the adjuster and come to the setting the book suggests. I also read somebody elses post that said there was some type of spring that could be used up at the carb to correct this problem.
The trans is working fine this way but I want to make sure i am not missing something.

It's very simple to do and you don't have to remove the pan...

One thing to add here. If you are using a Holley or Edelbrock, you need to add the linkage adaptor to get the correct pull on the cable. Without it, you stand a good chance of toasting the trans from too low of pressures. The Qjet seems to have the correct geometry for the 700. Just a thought.
