This is not quite about 5.0 mustangs, but this is a AOD transmission that I installed in my 72 LTD convertable with 351W.

Even with the TV cable disconnected from the Sonnax adapter atttached to the Lokar TV cable, the TV pressure is at least 50 psi at idle. WOT TV pressure is ~85psi.

The 1-2 upshift at part throttle is at just over 25 mph. the 2-3 upshift is at ~45mph. I've only tried to drive this less than 30 miles since the swap.
What do I need to do to get the TV pressure down so that this will shift somewhere near normal?

if you drop the pan, you will find the spring that is used to hold the tv lever back. sometimes it pops out of place if the valvebody has been tinkered with, it sits in a groove on the separator plate. hope this helps.
