modulator valve adjustments

I put in a new transmission modulator valve, now it is shifting to soon. Should I adjust it clockwise or counter clockwise? to get it to shift harder or at high rpm the car is a 1984 Mercedes Benz 240D

Thumbs up

Modular controls the shift firmness, TV (bowden) cable is for shift timing.
I'm not a doctor, but I'll have a look.
