700r4 when floored it wont shift

so i had a rebuilt 700r4 installed in my 71 camaro 454. it shifts hard into 1st unless i press the gas pedal just right it shifts smooth. but when im cuzing and punch it, it will not shift out of 2nd or if in 3rd into 4th. so it is sticking?? i drive in 2nd punch it and no shift into 3rd it red lines and starts to smell like tranny fulid bad no leaks and if i let out it shifts into 3rd very weird its like i have a manual tranny and when letting go of the gas for a second it shifts and i can get back into it and it goes but until i let out of the gas a bit it stays in that gear. works fine under normal driving shifts though all gears. any help sticky gears i guess

It sounds like or could be the TV cable is inproperly adjusted.Don't drive it this way it will burn the tranny up in time.

Correct adjustment of the TV cable is uber important. The geometry of the carb linkage also need to be correct. Info/links here.

Good luck.

Park it until you can get it adjusted properly. Hopefully it's not already too late. Did your builder not warn you about proper setup?
