You are going all the way to 2900rpms before it shifts?

yes, all the shift points seem high to me and it seems to shift only under full throttle/high rpm?

Have you puttered with the throttle valve cable connected to the modulator? That is what controls up shift timing. Incorrect adjustment can limit throttle opening too, just saying.

Good point Mike. This was all taken apart when they rebuilt the fuel pump a few years ago and the bus sat several years since. So I have not seen the original setup. When I compare it to my 78 they are totally different. The 78 has a hard throttle rod coming from the front of the engine and the modulator is directly bolted to the throttle linkage. The 83 has a flex cable coming in from the back of the engine and a long slot for the modulator linkage.

I then found a long spring dropped down where the head meets the manifold and from pics determined it should be on the modulator linkage pulling forward? When I did that is down shifted better but didn't seem to affect the upshift?

I also saw an adjustment on the throttle end of the cable but looks like you have to take the entire cable off and rotate to adjust? I would know which way to adjust to bring the shift point down?

Does this look right to you? it would make sense that all the issues I'm having could be something not put together properly and I'm simply chasing my tail?
