From my limited knowledge of the 700R4, you definitely have a TV problem. I suspect it is either in the TV adjustment or in length of pull geometry. Looks like the QJet is for a TH 350 or 400. I assume the bracket attached to the carb's rear mounting studs is for the TV cable. I personally do not like the alignment if it is. Your shift points are not bad for partial throttle so the gov. weights are not far off. Your stated the TV plunger is a bit depressed at idle. I think it should not be depressed at all which means you need to lengthen the cable (more slack) If you can't get this, you will need to modify your bracket or move the front ball on the cable forward. You may want to PM Crosley because he is very knowledgeable of trannys.
