Have 98 Vt 600 CD, it appears to have only 4 gears, is this correct

Yes. The gear shift pattern is usually stamped on the side of the engine case next to the shifter. Early VT600 Shadows were 4 speed transmissions. When you are in top gear on most Honda's you can move the shift pedal up with no resistance while driving. It is a way I use to check that I am in top gear when driving at slower speeds.

Honda accord exr 1987 automatic trans.

It's hard to understand when you say it feels like a manual shift. Noise? Feel? I do know that the 87 auto trans does have a weak 1st to 2nd shift drum (as explained to me by my mechanic) that makes a grinding, elongated shift under heavy acceleration when it starts to wear. Under normal acceleration, 1st to 2nd shifts were normal (crisp, immediate). Since that day 8 years ago, I've avoided starting off to quickly, and so far have saved myself a tranny overhaul.
