Re: New Transmission help
Setting TV cable is simple.
First thing is the correct geometry correction piece for your brand of carburetor.
Second is to hold the throttle wide open when setting it.
IT IS NOT "ADJUSTABLE". Only set-able.
The final quick check to guarantee the setting is to pop the cable end off the carb. Push the throttle to WOT and then pull the TV cable all the way out. Bring it beside the knob it hooks to on the carb and you'll know if it's correct. It will be right beside it. Give it few snaps in and out at this point to make sure the valve is free and not hanging up. You'll feel it.
If the cable connection is back or forward of the knob it hooks on to, it's not set correctly.
Once this is correct, do not "adjust"......... Hold it, I forgot, there is one adjustment. It's the same as turning the dial on your oven full blast and walking away. Burnt.
If someone else sets it for you, pop it off, do the check above. No tools required. Trust no one.
Watch out for aftermarket TV cables. I had one that was frayed inside the sheath giving me false "feelings" as I pulled it. Toasted the tranny.
