    My 1992 SCLB 1500 5.7 99K miles - was shifting slow and sluggish (to my liking). So I adjusted the TV cable. Now the truck is shifting (under light, city driving) at 2000 rpm. Moderate throttle (highway on ramp) at 2500. Shifts are nice and firm (opposed to harsh).

    My question is - while I think this a positive improvement. Do any of you think these new shift points are too much? I'm the second owner of this truck. The original owner had the truck serviced at the dealership where it was purchased. Not saying that is good or bad. I know it was serviced "by the book" all fluids checked filled and/or changed per GM guidelines.

    Thanks

    there is a process you can find to follow to make sure it is adjusted properly.

    Thanks Red - I followed a post/process from another forum. The post was based on the theory that - quick, smooth/soft shifts = more slipping, heat and wear - versus, longer/firmer shifts = less slipping, less heat and less wear?

    that my be correct but there is a process that involves sliding the cable all the way in and then flooring the gas pedal or something like that. It adjusts the cable so it shifts different depending on how much throttle you are giving.
