700r4 shift problems

HI there, i have a 700r4 with a 2500 stall converter hooked to a sbc 350 with 430 hp... i'm having trouble when its time to shift into 4th, it seems to go back and forth between 3rd and 4th so i'm stuck with driving in 3rd so i don't have to listen and feel it shifting. what do i do to fix this? tha local trans shop that did the rebuild said to "just adjust the detent cable and driving in 3rd is fine" but i have a 700r4

Most people are using the WOT method posted all over the web and some transmission shops do that also while it will get you in the ballpark the best way is setting with a pressure gauge.I had a similar issue with a 700R4 after a re-adjustment by a shop using the pressure method it performed to perfection.Call around till you find a shop that will do it that way and you should have your fix or know whats going on.

Mine did something similar when i installed a new Carb with different geometry. I would up going to the wide open throttle method using the Carb linkage instead of the actual pedal, then backed it in 2 clicks on the plunger, WOT hasn't pulled it back out further and it shifts dead right now.
