Was the vehicle a factory AOD setup or has it been retrofitted? If it's stock, I'd find an online tutorial/how to for adjusting the TV cable. There are at least 3 different ways it can connect to the throttle body/carb, and in any case misadjustment can kill the transmission very quickly. It's not like a traditional "kickdown" cable/rod where you can drive the vehicle without it and it'll only 'kinda shift funky.'
Its a factory installed AOD. Shifts into overdrive about 40mph at zero throttle based on what the speedometer says. The tires are not stock size so the actual speed is unknown.

I may need to adjust the TV cable I don't know. I'll probably have the transmission shop do that so I know its right....
