hey guys, im trying to adjust the kickdown on my 727 - these are the issues im facing-

1)shifts to second too fast - at like 1200 rpms ( 8-10mph ) - to 3rd at 2k rpms (15 -20 mph)
2) does not downshift to 2-1 at low speeds unless i come to a complete stop .

ive got a bouchillon kickdown cable and bracket . ive set the cable up at full throttle and the lever goes fully backwards under full throttle. At WOT the shifts points are fair.

my another question is does the lever needs to be fully forward at idle?( which it is now with a spring making sure it goes back too)
i read in the below article that it needs to be put on where you start feeling pressure? 90 degrees? please find the article below
