Hello, sorry I don't have a picture of this one, see if the info below helps. Thanks
Throttle Valve Cable
This procedure applies to the THM 700R4 transmission.
The adjustment is made at the engine end of the cable with the engine off, by rotating the throttle lever by hand. DO NOT use the accelerator pedal to rotate the throttle lever.
Remove the air cleaner.
Depress and hold down the metal adjusting tab at the end of the cable.
Move the slider until it stops against the fitting.
Release the adjusting tab.
Rotate the throttle lever to the full extent of it travel.
The slider must move towards the lever when the lever is at full travel. Make sure that the cable moves freely.
The cable may appear to function properly with the engine cold. Recheck it with the engine hot.
Road test the truck.
Hello, Sure will try to help. You will find that the outer housing part of the cable will move to make the adjustment. When they say fitting, they just mean where it is bolted to the bracket. When it hits there it won't slide any more. Use the mechanical linkage where the throttle cable is connected to open the throttle plates, don't use the gas pedal. It needs to be adjusted at wide open throttle, with the motor off, of course. Let me know if this doesn't help. Once you look at it is should be pretty self explanatory. If you still have problems let me know and I may be able to find a picture of one on a gas motor, that will be similar. Thanks
