Question about 1986 GMC K1500
Took trans out of 86 caprice , rebuilt it ,replaced output shaft so it was a 4wd put it in gmc chevy pickup with 350 engine . Shift very soon early for 2nd and 3rd but 4th is late .unhooked tv cable completely and does not change . if tv cable is moved to far loose all gears and no upshifts
Are you sure the TV ( trans shift cable at the throttle valve) cable is correctly adjusted?? Without line pressure readings, I can only guess that the D3/Part throttle check ball is missing, if it is a trans problem
If the TV is correct, I am assuming that the TV cable is pulled tight at WOT.
Did you check the throttle (ACCEL) cable to be sure that the carb goes wide open when your accel pedal is on the floor?? This must be done with someone in the car and a second person looking at the carb. Without doing this, you do not know if you have WOT. Without WOT, the trans will not de-tent and shift down.

Check the TV cable, it may need to be adjusted or it may be binding and jammed. There could also be a problem with a broken governor gear since it's made of plastic, driver's side near the back of the main case under a round case. If it's is the governor gear replace it with the roll pin and filter just to make sure there are no broken parks that may have been caught by the filter. Good luck and hope this helps.

you have a valve body problem, some of the speed sonsor controls are malfunctioning... need to get into the valve body... check fluid condition for dirty and burned condition...
