Throttle Cable Adjustment??

Recommended Posts

Is there a link with details and maybe pictures that explains how to adjust the TV Cable. I got the bands adjusted on the transmission in spec. but its still shifting at higher rpms then I would like. So I've heard of adjusting the TV Cable will help. Never done it before, so I'm looking for a little help. Thanks!!

I'll give this a bump for you. I sorry I can't help you out much I've got a manual Cummins and Auto in my gasser. The throttle link are way different on both. I do know the adjust is there near the APPS sensor but how to do it I'm not sure.

ADJUSTMENTS - TRANSMISSION THROTTLE

VALVE CABLE

A correctly adjusted throttle valve cable will cause

the throttle lever on the transmission to move simultaneously

with the throttle body lever from the idle

position. Proper adjustment will allow simultaneous

movement without causing the transmission throttle

lever to either move ahead of, or lag behind the lever

on the throttle body.

ADJUSTMENT VERIFICATION

(1) Turn ignition key to OFF position.

(2) Remove air cleaner.

(3) Verify that lever on throttle body is at curb idle

position (Fig. 234). Then verify that the transmission

throttle lever (Fig. 235) is also at idle (fully forward)

position.

(4) Slide cable off attachment stud on throttle body

lever.

(5) Compare position of cable end to attachment

stud on throttle body lever:

² Cable end and attachment stud should be

aligned (or centered on one another) to within 1 mm

(0.039 in.) in either direction (Fig. 236).

² If cable end and attachment stud are misaligned

(off center), cable will have to be adjusted as

described in Throttle Valve Cable Adjustment procedure.

(6) Reconnect cable end to attachment stud. Then

with aid of a helper, observe movement of transmission

throttle lever and lever on throttle body.

² If both levers move simultaneously from idle to

half-throttle and back to idle position, adjustment is

correct.

² If transmission throttle lever moves ahead of, or

lags behind throttle body lever, cable adjustment will

be necessary. Or, if throttle body lever prevents

transmission lever from returning to closed position,

cable adjustment will be necessary.

THROTTLE VALVE CABLE (Continued)

ADJUSTMENT PROCEDURE

(1) Turn ignition switch to OFF position.

(2) Remove air cleaner if necessary.

(3) Disconnect cable end from attachment stud.

Carefully slide cable off stud. Do not pry or pull

cable off.

(4) Verify that transmission throttle lever is in

fully closed position. Then be sure lever on throttle

body is at curb idle position.

(5) Pry the T.V. cable lock (A) into the UP position

(Fig. 236). This will unlock the cable and allow for

readjustment.

(6) Apply just enough tension on the T.V. cable (B)

to remove any slack in the cable.Pulling too tight

will cause the T.V. lever on the transmission to

move out of its idle position, which will result

in an incorrect T.V. cable adjustment. Slide the

sheath of the T.V. cable (D) back and forth until the

centerlines of the T.V. cable end (B) and the throttle

bell crank lever © are aligned within one millimeter

(1mm) (Fig. 236).

(7) While holding the T.V. cable in the set position

push the T.V. cable lock (A) into the down position

(Fig. 236). This will lock the present T.V. cable

adjustment.

NOTE: Be sure that as the cable is pulled forward

and centered on the throttle lever stud, the cable

housing moves smoothly with the cable. Due to the

angle at which the cable housing enters the spring

housing, the cable housing may bind slightly and

create an incorrect adjustment.

(8) Reconnect the T.V. cable (B) to the throttle

bellcrank lever ©.

(9) Check cable adjustment. Verify transmission

throttle lever and lever on throttle body move simultaneously.

Alright guys, one last question. I got my tv cable adjusted and it shifting fine. But while I was in there I noticed the top cable had a lot of slack in it. It runs from the throttle bracket to something mounted underneath the drivers side batter. What is this cable and should it have this much slack? Can it be/should it be adjusted tighter? Thanks,
