Unhappy W123 Flaring 2-3

I just took my 83 300d for its first short drive and everytime it would flare (in between shifts the motor seems to free rev for a second or two, until I let off the accelerator and it goes into third) horribly into third. I've been reading this isn't all to uncommon for 123s, but it sure doesn't make me feel very comfortable. I tried adjusting the bowden and it only made my 1-2 noticeable and quicker/harder going into D. Maybe I should try getting a new modulator? It has brand new Castrol Dextron/Mercron III fluid (old fluid was pretty clean) with a new Febi filter in it. Any advice on how to best adjust this out or even knowing someone else's does this too would be great peace of mind, and very appreciated.
