700R4/2004R TV Cable Adjustment Instructions WARNING! IMPORTANT NOTICE!
POST INSTALLATION ADJUSTMENT.
It is imperative that after your new TCI® 700R4/2004R transmission has been installed that the Throttle Valve (TV) Cable gets adjusted properly, DAMAGE WILL OCCUR to the transmission, voiding the warranty. If you are unsure about the proper adjustment needed, call TCI®'s tech line for help or refer to a General Motors service manual for additional information and reference.
Function of the TV Cable: Many people believe that this is a detent downshift cable and that this is the only function that the cable performs. In actuality, the TV Cable controls line pressures, shift points, part throttle downshifts and detent downshifts. The cable functions similarly to the combination vacuum modulator/cable systems found on other automatic transmissions.
TV Cable Connection: If you are retrofitting your TCI® 700R4/2004R transmission in place of a different model transmission (i.e. TH-350 or TH-400) it is imperative that you follow the TV Cable bracket fabrication instructions. If your TCI® 700R4/2004R is replacing an original 700R4/2004R then skip to Step 2.
Step 1 Obtain a cable that is designed for use with the 700R4/2004R transmission. The TH-350 and older TH-200 cables are designed differently and will not work. A salvage yard cable may work but be forewarned: There are about 30 different length cables found on stock vehicles and a cable that is too short in your application will not work. Also, used cables could have a number of problems as well, including stretched cables, damaged sheathing or housings or mutilated cable ends. TCI® recommends our universal TV Cable (TCI® 376800) that is designed to work correctly in any 700R4/2004R application.
HOW DO YOU ADJUST KICK DOWN CABLE FOR CHEVY 1500 1 - gm_tv_fig1.gifStep 2 With the carburetor/throttle body end of the TV Cable disconnected, pull the link out of the transmission and fit the cable end to the link as shown in Figure 1. Push the TV Cable sheath into the seal in the transmission and tighten the 10mm retaining bolt. If your vehicle has a factory installed bracket for the TV Cable then skip to Step 4.
Step 3 Install a bracket that will allow the TV Cable to mount to the carburetor/throttle body. TCI® carries two brackets: TCI® 376700 works with Rochester Quadrajets, Carter AFBs or Edelbrock Performer carburetors. TCI® 376800 works with most Holley carburetors.
If you are using a Chevrolet TBI/TPI induction system, then correct brackets can be obtained from a salvage yard or a local car dealership.
Figure 2 demonstrates the correct geometry for the TV Cable mounting position. Use the following procedure to determine if your ADJUSTER MOUNTING POINT is correct.
a. Push in the Adjust Tab and retract the Slider in the direction shown in Figure 3.
b. Without allowing the Slider to move, pull the cable until it stops and measure from the mounting bracket to the cable end. Add 3/16" to this measurement and that will determine the ADJUSTER MOUNTING POINT distance at full throttle (WOT).
gm_tv_fig2.gifc. Also note in Figure 2 that the distance from the throttle shaft to the cable end is referenced. This distance must be between 1 7/64" and 1 1/8"! The cable end mounting point should follow a 78° arc between closed throttle and WOT in order to achieve the proper amount of pull on the cable.
Step 4 Adjustment of the TV Cable on a gasoline engine. For a diesel application go to Step 5.
a. Adjustments are made with the engine off. Locate the Adjust Tab on the cable housing. Press in the tab and push the slider as shown in Figure 3.
b. Release the tab and rotate the throttle lever to WOT and the cable will self adjust itself as evidenced by a few audible clicks. Release the throttle lever and check the cable for aHOW DO YOU ADJUST KICK DOWN CABLE FOR CHEVY 1500 1 - gm_tv_fig3.gifnding or sticking.
gm_tv_fig3.gifc. Road test the vehicle. Under moderate acceleration your shift points should be close to the following:
1-2…………………15-20 MPH
2-3…………………25-30 MPH
3-4…………………40-45 MPH
If the cable is adjusted too loosely your transmission will exhibit soft, stacked shifts (not spread out). DO NOT CONTINUE DRIVING VEHICLE IF THIS HAPPENS! Immediately readjust cable. If you continue to have problems, please contact TCI®'s tech department for assistance.
Step 5 Adjustments of the TV Cable on a diesel engine.
a. Adjustments are made with the engine off. If equipped with cruise control, remove the control rod.
b. Disconnect the TV Cable end from the throttle lever.
c. Loosen the locknut on the pump rod and shorten several turns.
d. Turn throttle lever to WOT and tighten the pump rod locknut.
e. Lengthen pump rod until injection pump lever contacts the full throttle stop.
f. Release the throttle lever and tighten the pump rod locknut.
g. Remove pump rod from the throttle lever.
h. Reconnect the TV Cable end to the throttle lever.
i. Press in the Adjust Tab and move Slider as shown in Figure 3.
j. Release the tab and rotate the throttle lever to WOT and the cable will self adjust itself as evidenced by a few audible clicks. Release the throttle lever and check the cable for any signs of binding or sticking.
k. Reconnect the pump rod and cruise control throttle rod, if equipped.
l. If equipped with cruise control, adjust servo throttle rod to minimum slack.
m. Road test the vehicle. Under moderate acceleration your shift points should be close to the following:
1-2…………………15-20 MPH
2-3…………………25-30 MPH
3-4…………………40-45 MPH
n. If the cable is adjusted too loosely your transmission will exhibit soft, stacked shifts (not spread out). DO NOT CONTINUE DRIVING VEHICLE IF THIS HAPPENS! Immediately readjust cable. If you continue to have problems, please contact TCI®'s tech department for assistance.

Won't go into 4 low


Have you tried shifting the automatic transmission to neutral, or if manual transmission- place shift lever to neutral position, then shift the transfer case to neutral position wait a couple seconds then try shifting to 4 low- if you have manual hubs, engage those last. This removes most of the potential mechanical resistance that should allow for the transfer case to shift.

If it still will not go into 4 low you may be dealing with damaged teeth, bent shift dog or worn internal bearings inside the transfer case. As I recall, that was NOT a shift on the fly transfer case.

I have a 1998 chevy k2500 pickup with a 5.7L V8. The problem i am having is with the 4wd. it has a 3 button electronic shift selector. when pressing the 4wd low button it will shift the motor and the front...


First, you do not need 4 low unless you're stuck out in the bush somewhere. Secondly, when you shift from 2 high to 4 high, it goes in immediately. To access 4 low, the tranny shifter must first be put into neutral, wait five seconds, then shift into 4 low. To shift out of 4 low back to 4 high, you must shift into neutral for 5 seconds again. They both flash at the same time because you have not shifted into neutral gear with the transmission.

4x4 would not shift from low to high without shutting engine off.


Four wheel drive vehicles require you to put the transmission in neutral to go into low and to get out of low. That being said, if you still need to shut the engine down completely then your transmission needs an adjustment.

I guess the best , easiest & cheapest thing to do, right of the start is get fluid & filter changed, and lube all cables & linkages thoroughly, unless that's all been done recently.
