first of all how do you adjust the cable, i am afraid of breaking the plastic part under the throttle body, looks like it has plastic detent(notches) for adjustment.

then in simple man terms how do you know if you are running the line pressure too high.
what i did was(dont laugh) took two small washers about 1/16 thick each and cut a slit in them to fit over the cable, this in turn tightened the cable about 1/8 of an inch. it seems to hold 1-2 longer and 2-3 longer and the shifts are a little more firm. should i try more or leave it alone.
will running the line pressure too high hurt it?

Sorry for all the questions on one post. Sometimes i feel like i am talking in circles.(and not in a straight line hahahah)

You really should put a guage on it and see what the pressure is. Too much won't hurt it. It will increase the shift firmness and the shift RPM. Too little will burn the trans up.

I did the exact same thing on my TBird with the washers to adjust the tv cable. I've driven it over 50,000 miles (it now has 140,000) with no tranny problems. Shifts pretty firm too!
