I have a 72 3.0CS Automatic.I have tried posting to the E9 board but I think they all converted to 5 speeds a long time ago.

My car is not shifting till it hits about 3800 rpm and I can't get it going legally fast enough to get it to 3rd gear at all.I have the accelerator linkage correct where it hits the stop but that didn't help.

The Haynes book says to adjust the bands. I think I found the adjustment on the driver's side of the tranny but can't get at it without dropping the exhaust.The book also shows a shift lever adjustment.

1.Where is the band adjustment,the only one I saw as a possibility was in a semi-recessed spot.

2.Should I be looking some place else to make an adjustment?
