On my 47RE How would I adjust the bands inside the transmission. I have been reading up on it and some people say just let it keep doing what its been doing since adjusting them could make it go faster...
Also would the TV cable have anything to do with it?
Any help or steps on how to would be great thanks.
I just did my front band it made a bit of a difference. The band adjust set screw is a torx bit can't rember the size and a 18mm 3/8 socket with a extention to clear the trany lines. the set screw is located right behind the throtttle cable. unhook the spring so thaty is out of the way. then use the socket to mack the lock nut off about 5 turns. then turn the set screw in to 78 inlbs then back off 1 7/8 turns and hold the set screw and tighten the lock nut back up.

what about coming back down into 1st? as I come to a stop now, mine stays in second and won't drop down unless I manually pull it down. When the truck is cold it drops to first, but after it gets 180-190 it won't shift down. I adjusted the front band yesterday but that didn't help it. Does that sound like the rear band needs adjustment, or something with the TC once the fluid heats up?
