This thread just got very interesting. The thoughts and advice here are great. I'm going to keep fiddling with the Bowden cable until I emulate the responses here.

My most recent findings are that only under heavy full-throttle acceleration I can get into 1. Normal pedal pressure has it starting in 2 and upshifting as normal.

Now that I'm confident that the transmission is operating close to normal I have a question on clunking. It clunks upon shifting into gears up or down. I'm under the assumption this is a mount or bushing issue. I reused the original transmission mount, which looked to be fairly clean and firm, but I didn't pay much attention to it.
This area is typically used to brag about one's current or former automobiles.
