If the minimum cable setting is not enough, the trans will go into "fail safe " mode IF the fail safe check ball is installed. This fail safe mode will cause high RPM shifts like WOT and the shifts will be firm.

You may also have a worn out valve bore for the TV valve in the valve body. Oil pressure can get behind the inner TV valve and force it over to MAX stroke... that will also cause late - firm shifts like a WOT

Ive checked to make sure there wasnt any slack. There isnt any. Readjusted the TV cable one more time for good measure.

Moved on to the Governor, Pulled it to make sure everything moved as it should. Cleaned well with Break cleaner. Soaked it in clean fresh trans fluid and reinstalled it.

Still not wanting to shift unless its really hi in the rpm range, Or at WOT. Is there anything else to check before i move on to pulling this unit and installing another one.
