TV cable adjustment?

Has anyone ever had the pan off to see where the lever is at idle and WOT after "properly adjusting" the tv cable? Should it be touching the plunger at idle, then have the plunger all the way in at WOT?
I did the procedure for my 93 Vette, different procedure than you do as it is an ASR equipped car, and I used the FSM.

Do you not like the answers you receive on yellowbullet.com on this same line of questions?

I post throughout the internet to get answers, much like everyone else on different forums. Some people surf different forums, and if I dont get one person on one forum, maybe I will get them on another.
Is there a problem with asking on more than one forum? Is it unreasonable to see if there are answers elsewhere. Sorry if I offended someones knowledge while I asked elsewhere.
Also, when I need an answer rather quickly, I tend to ask in several spots, to better my chance of getting an answer sooner than later.

I see no problem asking questions on many forums. You were offered quality advice on the other forum I mention , yet keep asking. How do you sort out the correct info?

To answer your questions... the TV linkage internal lever is generally right at the plunger at minimum setting.

If the fail safe check ball is in place, the minimum setting is important as the setting at WOT . There is a pin that will dislodge the fail safe check ball. If the TV bore is worn too much , it can flood the fail safe system and place the trans into fail safe even IF the TV cable setting is correct

The plunger is fully pushed in when the throttle is at WOT . That is the way GM designed the setup , to my knowledge.

There is way more to the TV than simply the linkage location. Is the TV bore worn too far? The fancy replacement TV valve in TransGo kits work very well , yet if the bore is too worn it must be reamed over size and an over sized valve installed

Well thanks for the advice on both forums. Whats your name? Are you the one who suggested changing the tv linkage to an F body style?
