As the title states.

Here is what I did. The car has been running decent but have had an issue where stopping at a light the engine would come down to a low idle would be choppy and have low vacuum. So in order to try and tune some of this out I played around with the idle circuit, a lot adjusting the idle air and the idle RPM using both the front idle adjust screw and the back. all said and done I adjust quite a bit more into the back and quite a bit out of the front.
Not thinking, I didn't readjust the TV cable, and I took the car out for a jaunt for about two miles. The car didn't appear to shift much different, maybe a little light on the shifts as far as feel. I never got into it hard on the drive. After thinking about it I reset the TV cable, full case back and WOT, the continued on the drive. The transmission appears to shift fine, but I want to know if it is possible that I could have hurt it with backing out the idle screw.
The transmission was originally built with lots of good parts and has a Trans-go 2-3 kit in the VB.
Previous testing I did several years back had pressures boosted at idle and all the way through. I would get "factory Pressures" if the TV cable was disconnected.
Experts please let me know this is going to drive me crazy.

If it still shifts the way it should after pretty much a non issue, we can all take your question and put in the junk file. You didn't get lucky as you did nothing wrong. Now unhook the cable and drive a few miles, you most likely would have killed it as the cable regulates line pressure to the forward drum.
