Suggestion..... make sure that engine off .... the TV cable is at its maximum set-point. IOW....... set the TV cable to be fully extended in the WOT position of the carburetor or TB. LUK

Make sure you have it adjusted right before you stand on the throotle as low pressure at high rpm and load will destroy your trans.

Ditto, the TV pressure is super super critical in the AOD. Does the TV lever have good resistance to movement when it's not connected to the cable? There is an internal spring metal piece that has to be engaged properly also, as the VB is installed.

That too quick and soft shifting does sound like very low TV pressure. You can raise the TV pressure at will and do no harm, but don't randomly lower the pressure. As the TV lever is moved more, against the resistance internally(cable not connected), the pressure goes up, and that raises shift points and firmness. Regards,

THANKS  this is a great site with so much info. I might just bump up the pressure a touch more.
