Question First gear crawls '82 300D Turbo

Met a friend this evening who asked me to check out his '82 300D. Seemed like flare-out in 1st gear. 2nd ,3rd, 4th and Reverse are fine. I replaced his Switch-over Vacuum Valve levers on top of the Valve cover ( they were totelly worn out ) but I didn't replace the Dashpot valve. Once in 2nd it took off but 1st still almost non-existant.
I wonder if adjusting that Screw on the Tranny that seems to re-engage the bands for the Lost-Reverse-Syndrome would help in this instance as well. Am I crazy here for thinking this?

Wink Hold Up I think I got it

After thinking about it I decided to ask: " Have you checked the Tranny Fluid Level"? (I'd assumed he'd already done that.) "No, man I just got it & was all excited about it and just called you to come check it out. I'd only had it 5 minutes" That's your friends for ya'. He checked it this morning after warming it up and putting it into gear and the fluid wasn't even touching the stick! ...ergo no pressure!
