Powerglide Transmission Questions

My wide open throttle shift point is 55 mph and the owner's manual states it should be 65 mph.
Should I have the throttle valve adjusted or leave it alone?

Is it difficult to adjust the low band? Should it be done by a dealer or at a transmission shop?
My mechanic says it can be difficult to adjust due to space limitations.

I have reviewed the procedures in the overhaul manual 7-61and 62.

Thanks, Jim
