79 C6 detent and band questions...

I've tried other forums, I get the best answers here... So here I go.

I just rebuilt my C6. The 1-2 shift is a tad soft, I was thinking of just tightening the band adjuster a little (like 1/4 turn maybe less). I did originally use a tq wrench but I have poor luck (new to special tools).

How far does the detent lever (on trans) need to push the valve to kickdown? Does it start as soon as the valve opens or at the end? Reason is I never had good kickdown and now I have none. With throttle pressed the kickdown still isn't totally open (maybe between 1/4-1/8 turn left to go with gas pedal to floor). I couldn't tell where WOT is to adjust it using manuals instructions.. So I'm gonna do it by feel.
