Update

We finally got around to making the adjustments to the TV linkage. It was just a matter of changing the starting place for the TV pull.

I will take some pictures of it for comparison.

After a few readjustments of the cable, the shifts are as near perfect as I've seen. With very light acceleration, the shifts occur at about 2000RPM. In OD at about 45MPH, locking the TCC at the same time. The TCC does not lock in 2nd and 3rd now.

Trans is working very nicely. The correct adjustment of the TV system is critical, crucial, imperative, I'm not sure there is a word the accurately describes the importance of a correctly adjusted TV cable system.

Thanks guys, I knew it wasn't right but wasn't sure how to go about fixing it with the blower linkage. The information that explains the TV throw needs to be 1/3 before the center line of the throttle shaft and 2/3 after or forward of the center line, is what cleared the water for me.

New 700R4/4L60 Pressure Reg. Spring & Sun Shell

OD, Good to hear you got it straightened out. Should be a lot more fun to drive.

I ran across this new item not long ago. It's a Line Pressure Booster Kit with a progressive rate Pr. Regulator Spring , much better design than the normal HiPer Pr. Reg. Springs. Wish Sonnax listed the Boost Valve sizes.

I wonder if this is a big reason why 7004's seem to be prone to failure, because of mis-adjusted TV cables. It seems SO finicky to get right, that I'm surprised GM went with a system like this that can be set wrong so easily. I know this is a big reason why I'm nervous to want to upgrade to one of these. I love the OD factor, and they can be built strong, but trusting someone to set up the TV cable right......I dunno.

That truck looks awesome. My 85 is somewhat similar: yellow 2wd shortbox that I like to take out on nice days and to the track here and there but it sure doesn't have a blown 454 with a shotgun scoop! More pics please!

Like every 700R4 that I've been around, it is a hoot to drive with a low rear end gear and the OD with TCC. I think they are the ultimate street/strip setup if it's built with this in mind.

This truck will get away from you in a hurry. You need to be prepared when you step on the go petal.

Sux, don't be afraid of the 700R4 just because of the TV cable. The only reason I had trouble figuring out this one is because of the blower linkage. Don't depend on someone else, figure it out for yourself with help from here and other knowledgeable people, and you won't have any problems.

I'll see if I've got more pictures.
