Trans Modulator adjustment Question

Hi all,

Just wondering when you turn the modulator clockwise or anticlockwise, on which side does it soften and on which side does it harden shifts..

Oh and another question why do you guys always are concerned about the fluid level in the tranny, what will happen if its a little above???

Car is a 86 190D 2.5 Auto

Working from memory, but I think clockwise will firm up shifts and counterclockwise will soften.

Turn it counter clock-wise to firm up the shifts. Turn it using the smallest possible increments and if the shifts become too firm then turn the modulator back.
Have adjusted a few and this is the correct way to adjust the modulator.
For a detailed review of these adjustments read Steve Brothertons article at www.continentalimports.com. He gives an excellent review of all the adjustments needed.

OK, I was backwards. Couldn't remember which direction at the end of a long day. Nice thing about these modulators though, if you misadjust, it is very easy to go back and start fresh. Just remember how many notches you've moved the "T". While back on the subject, adjust it one notch at a time and go for a test drive. Keep adjusting one notch at a time until it shifts at it's best point. A little adjustment goes a long, long way here.
