 How to setup your stock TV cable

 Step 1 (Installing)
  Insert the TV cable into the base plate bracket until you hear it click into position. To do this, match the index guide on the TV cable housing, with the notch in the base plate bracket (red circles in pictures at left). The TV cable will not go in any other way.
 Step 2 (Installing)
Check that the two retaining "tabs" on the TV cable housing have spread out and locked the cable into the base plate bracket. These tabs prevent the cable housing from coming out. (Red circles at right)
 Step 3 (Adjusting)
  Pressing in and holding the 'D' shaped slider release button (pictures at left and above) the inner cable housing (known as the "slider") will be released and freely slide back and forth in a range of approximately one inch. Press the "D" button and pull the "slider" all the way to its outermost (forward towards the front of the engine) position. Positioning the slider all the way out like this makes the next step, installing of the TV cable "ball" into the hole on the TV Made EZ cam, much easier to accomplish.
 Step 4 (Installing)
Note: The TV Made EZ system shown in the pictures at right is our system for the Edelbrock Pro-Flo 3500 / 3507 , the cam on your system may not look like this, but all TV Made EZ Evolution Two systems have a similar type cable ball attachment hole in the cam.

The pictures at right illustrate how to connect the TV cable by inserting the ball through the provided opening on the cam. Rotating the cable to the rear will prevent it from coming out.
 
Once connected, press in the "D" shaped release button, push the "slider" rearward (towards the transmission) as far as it will travel. While holding the "slider" rearward, release the "D" shaped button to "fix" the slider in this rearward most position. From the drivers seat position, press the accelerator pedal all the way to the floor. While holding the accelerator pedal to the floor, have your assistant try to rotate the carburetor/fuel injection linkage further to confirm it's getting W.O.T with the accelerator pedal. If he can rotate the Throttle linkage further, you need to fix the throttle linkage. Once the pressure gauge is connected to the transmissions diagnostic port (See gauge installation instruction link below), check for instantaneous pressure rise by gently pulling the cable where it leaves the cable housing. Once instant pressure rise is confirmed, You're ready to perform your test drive!
 Step 5 (Adjusting)
We strongly recommend you leave the pressure gauge hooked up during all test driving. It is very educational to observe the operating pressure reactions caused by the TV system. During the test driving we also recommend taking along the Allen wrench supplied in the TV Made EZ kit that fits the cap screw that holds the cam from moving. (Like the one shown within the red circles at left) We recommend you start with the cam in the lower position (far left picture),
Perform a test drive while making mental notes of the shift timing and feel characteristics during light to medium throttle driving. Stop, loosen the attachment bolt, rotate the cam clock wise to the upper position (near left picture), then perform another test drive and notice the difference in shift timing and feel during light to medium throttle driving with this different set up. We encourage you to freely experiment with the unlimited number of positions along the cam track until you find the one that gives you the best overall driving characteristics that match your driving style. Be sure to check for instantaneous pressure response with even slight cable movement after each adjustment. These adjustments can be done while the engine is running.
 Pressure Test
Now that you have your TV Made Ez kit installed, you will need to perform a standard pressure test before you do a test drive. Once you have done the pressure test, you will need to call in your pressures to verify the set up is correct. If you do not have our transmission, we still encourage you to proceed to the pressure and drive testing so we can teach you what your pressure readings mean and verify that everything is in working order, or diagnose any problems that you may have.

If you have one of our transmissions, you need to to the pressure tests and call these figures in before you proceed with the test driving.
