AOD TV Cable Linkage?

Hey y'all! I have a 90' Mustang with a built 302, and an AOD with the 4R70W Gearset. I had to drop the trans to put a new Torque Converter in it, and replace the Front Pump Seal. Now I have everything bolted back up, but my TV Linkage at the Trans won't move. I don't think I have it connected correctly. Can anyone help me locate a diagram to help me see exactly how to bolt the linkage arm back to the Trans? Is there any spacers or anything that I might be missing in there?

If it has an arm rather than a cable, it is very early (80-85 carbureted). A FORD dealer should be able to get an illustration on the CDP or you will find it in an early shop manual.

Info From Transmission Exchange-

FORD AOD Automatic Overdrive

ROD TYPE-TV ADJUSTMENT

1. Remove the air cleaner. Have someone floor the gas pedal from inside the car while you bend the THROTTLE cable bracket until the butterfly arm bottoms solidly on it's stop.

2. Turn the adjustment screw IN until 13 threads are sticking out the front of the adjuster arm. (Approx. 7/16")

3. Start the engine with the AIR OFF and leave it OFF.

4. While the engine is idling, loosen the adjustment bolt on the arm on the side of the transmission with a 13mm socket one full turn. Push the arm up (towards the top of the vehicle) and gently tighten the bolt.

5. Now go back to the top adjustment and back off 13 turns.

6. Now ROAD TEST. Place the selector in the '3' position and cruise at 45 mph. Floor the throttle, you will have no 3-2 kickdown. Turn the adjuster screw in exactly one turn at a time until you have kickdown at 45 mph. Then, turn the screw in 3 more turns. You will be in the middle of the TV adjustment.

7. Now ROAD TEST for shift feel and timing. You can adjust in or out up to 2 turns to improve shift quality.

8. Replace the air cleaner.

(Their adjusting procedure recommendation only)

I have the cable type. My problem is the arm that the cable hooks to down at the Trans. I unbolted the arm from the trans. It hooks up at the same spot as the shift lever. It just won't move the way I have it hooked up, and am wanting to see a diagram to know if I did it wrong, or if there is other problems. Thanks.

After a bit of trial and error, I found that the arm was indeed put back on wrong. The arm for the TV cable to connect to need to ride on the high side of the TV Pin at the shift arm, and the long part of the TV Arm needs to point to the rear of the car. Thanks to those that helped, and perhaps this will help others.
