 How to install your TV Cable

 Step 1
  The TV cable is connected to the passenger side of Th-2004R and Th-700R4 transmissions at the locations shown in the above pictures. Same side as your dipstick. The picture at the far left shows the wire link and the TV cable to case seal. This seal must be placed into the transmission before installation, not onto the end of the TV cable housing! The wire link will be inserted into the hole of the connector at the transmission end of the TV cable. (See closest picture at left)
 Step 2
We install a new TV cable seal into every transmission we build. A new seal is also provided with new TV cables. With the transmission in the vehicle, it's very difficult to see if a seal is already installed into the case. Don't try to install two seals into the same hole! The proper method for installing the TV cable is to remove the seal from the end of the TV cable, install one into the case, lube the end of the TV cable housing then slide this freshly lubricated housing into the seal in the case. Steps three and four will take you through this picture by picture.   
 Step 3
   Slide the bent end of the link through the attachment hole at the end of the TV cable. Gently pull on the opposite end of the TV cable (carburetor/fuel injection end) of the TV cable while feeding the transmission end of the cable housing down into the transmission seal. Be sure the wire link doesn't slip out while performing this procedure.
 Step 4
Start the end of the cable housing into the rubber seal and push it all the way in using a twisting motion until it's completely seated flush with the case. Now line up the bolt hole on the cable housing with the bolt hole on the transmission case. Install and tighten the bolt. Use caution not to over tighten and break the housing.
