|Sometimes there's an advantage to delaying these articles. Several times I've taken a full array of photos only to find out I have to do it differently or over again. Mounting the transmission T.V. cable is a good example. This is the final photo from a series of photos taken when I installed the first cable. It was a universal fit cable that was given to me when I picked up the transmission. There were two problems with the cable – it was 3-inches too short and the telescoping "one size fits all" housing wouldn't hold under pressure.
I made a call to the folks at Lokar and they fixed me up with an extra long custom cable and it was at my doorstep in a manner of days. If I had it from the start it would have saved me a lot of time but I learn better the hard way.
The T.V. (Throttle Valve) cable on a 700-4R transmission controls line pressure, shift point, shift feel, part throttle downshifts and detent downshifts. The cable pulls on a small rod in the transmission as the throttle pedal is pushed – so it moves opposite the throttle cable.
