Adjusting the TV Cable
The first step of the factory TV "set" procedure is accomplished by first pushing in on the TV cable
housings "D" (green) shaped cable slider release button, then pushing the cable slider towards the
transmission until it stops as far into the cable housing as it will go. Release the "D" button to
hold it in this preset position.
By sliding the "cable slider" back into the cable housing like this, you're increasing the actual
length of the TV cable's outer sheath that's located between the transmission case and the TV cables
mounting bracket located on the intake manifold. As the cable sheath gets longer between these two
connection points, it will preload the TV plunger into the TV bushing.
The manual states you properly "set" the TV system by manually rotating the "carburetor linkage" to
its wide open throttle position. However, as you attempt to rotate the "carburetor linkage" towards
its wide open throttle position, the TV lever quickly comes into contact with the outer end of the
The TV lever stops at the TV bushing well before the throttle reaches its wide open throttle position.
You must "force" the "carburetor linkage" to its full W.O.T. position. This action has "forced" the
TV cable "slider" mechanism to "ratchet" out
