The vacuum is hooked up and working because with out it, it wont shift.
Almost all aftermarket modulators are adjustable by reaching down into the hose nipple with a small flat blade screwdriver, in your case turning it counter clockwise to "soften" it, 1/2 turn at a time. Can't go too far though, only maybe 3 full turns out. This will also lower the shift points a lttle too, though. Have you worked on the carb and the distributor advance curve to try to get a stable 950-1050 rpm idle speed?? This is where most of the problem probably is.
