Cobalt: I just went out and measured the travel of my cable and it is less than 1 inch. So, no matter where the mounting bracket is (within reason)- as long as the cable can move freely, it shouldn't be that critical. I'm using an universal cable that the builder installed. OEM are more vehicle specific and that distance would be more critical I believe. I am going to try as one of your links suggested and try to force downshift from second to first. I just feel there is something binding in the valve body causing this issue. Seems like I need another half inch of travel. Builder told me he uses a special self cleaning valve/spring to prevent sticking. That may be the issue.
