T.V. Cable Adjustment

Hello, Ive been having some fairly hard shifts from 1-2, and 2-3 under light load (Im talking just barely moving the throttle and shifts happening at ~1800 rpm). To the point that every now and again you can feel it in the rear end clunk a little. Ive been reading that the T.V. Cable on the throttle body may need adjusted. The problem is most of the posts Ive found the procedure on no longer have photos accosiatied to them which makes knowing what they mean when it says to align A,B C,D etc. Can anyone post the needed photos please? Here is a link to the procedue in question: Kick down cable

Is it ok that I help this guy out Scott? I want to make sure I'm doing everything to your satisfaction.....

ADJUSTMENTS - THROTTLE VALVE CABLE



1 - THROTTLE VALVE CABLE
2 - CABLE BRACKET
3 - THROTTLE BODY LEVER
4 - ACCELERATOR CABLE
5 - SPEED CONTROL CABLE


A correctly adjusted throttle valve cable (1) will cause the throttle lever on the transmission to move simultaneously with the throttle body lever (3) 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 - TRANSMISSION SHIFTER CABLE
2 - THROTTLE VALVE CABLE
3 - TRANSFER CASE SHIFTER CABLE
4 - TRANSFER CASE SHIFTER CABLE BRACKET RETAINING BOLT (1 OR 2)
5 - THROTTLE VALVE CABLE BRACKET RETAINING BOLT
6 - ELECTRICAL CONNECTORS
7 - TRANSMISSION FLUID LINES


Turn ignition key to OFF position.
Remove air cleaner.
Verify that lever on throttle body is at curb idle position. Then verify that the transmission throttle lever is also at idle (fully forward) position.



1 - THROTTLE LINKAGE
2 - THROTTLE VALVE CABLE LOCKING CLIP
3 - THROTTLE VALVE CABLE


Slide cable off attachment stud on throttle body lever.
Compare position (B) of cable end to attachment stud on throttle body lever:
Cable end and attachment stud should be aligned (or centered on one another) to within 1 mm (0.039 in.) in either direction (B)(Throttle Valve Cable at Throttle Linkage).
If cable end and attachment stud are misaligned (off center), cable will have to be adjusted as described in Throttle Valve Cable Adjustment procedure.
Reconnect cable end to attachment stud. Then with aid of a helper, observe movement of transmission throttle lever and lever on throttle body.
If both levers move simultaneously from idle to half-throttle and back to idle position, adjustment is correct.
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.

ADJUSTMENT PROCEDURE



1 - THROTTLE LINKAGE
2 - THROTTLE VALVE CABLE LOCKING CLIP
3 - THROTTLE VALVE CABLE


Turn ignition switch to OFF position.
Remove air cleaner if necessary.
Disconnect cable end (3)(Throttle Valve Cable at Throttle Linkage) from attachment stud on throttle lever (1). Carefully slide cable off stud. Do not pry or pull cable off.
Verify that transmission throttle lever is in fully closed position. Then be sure lever on throttle body is at curb idle position.
Pry the T.V. cable lock (A) into the UP position. This will unlock the cable and allow for readjustment.
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 (C) are aligned within one millimeter (1mm).
While holding the T.V. cable in the set position push the T.V. cable lock (A) into the down position. 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.

Reconnect the T.V. cable (B) to the throttle bellcrank lever (C).
Check cable adjustment. Verify transmission throttle lever and lever on throttle body move simultaneously.

Perfect place for questions bud. There's some smart assery (ha) going on lately but, hey it's the webs. Lol
The above procedure is accurate "by the book" but from sounds of it you may have a shift kit and possible stall torque converter installed.
I find often you'll have to adjust cable one notch at a time to find correct downshifting/up shifting sweet spot.
In lay terms, pop white clip from TV cable on Throttle body but don't remove. Just enough to let cable position adjust. Note/mark current position first so you know which want you are going while adjusting. Very fast, simple process. Try, adjust, drive, repeat.

I kind of figured that was the case, but on the old Forum I frequent for VW's posting in the wrong form is like being issued a death sentence.

I'm kind of wondering if a shift kit hasn't been installed, but I can't contact the previous owner so I'm kind of at a loss on some of the mod's that have been done. Wish there was a way to tell, because since I've bought the truck I've wondered if it was tuned and had a shift kit in it. But of course, there's no easy way to tell (that I'm aware of) . I figure I'll start with the cable though and see if it improves some.

In the interest of making sure the P.O. didn't over adjust the cable, would it be possible to let the slack out of the cable so that the throttle lever on the trans is all the way in? That way I know that end is all the way at the correct idle location. Or is it one of those designs where the idle location on the trans doesn't have a hard stop location and just keeps unwinding? (Hope I explained that well enough lol)
