700r4 tv plunger gap (between lever and plunger)

I know there's hundreds of posts on this subject but I couldn't find my situation.
this is on a 1984 Chevy pickup with the 6.2 diesel.
what I know:
all stock
correct geometry at the throttle linkage
set at WOT correctly at the throttle
correct TV cable length
no kinks, nothing bent
TV spring=1.94"


My problem is that I have about a 3/8 inch gap between the plunger and the TV lever. there are 3 rings showing on the plunger, and when I slide the plunger out to the lever, there are 5 rings showing.

!s this normal to have only 3 rings showing with no pressure on the plunger

Really confused!
Thanks for your responses!
could the spring be too short or maybe the TV valve itself be stuck

when the trans is operating, the plunger is pushed out by oil pressure

The linkage arm should just touch the plunger when the TV cable is at full throttle close and the valve body plunger fully extended
