E320 throttle & trans cable adj settings

Is there any particular settings (adjustment) for the trans and throttle cables on an '95 E320?

I noticed on both, they had a lot of slack. I have adjusted both a bit, but not to the point of removing all slack. They both still have a little.

I have felt the difference in the gas pedal and in when the transmission will downshift.

Your expertise would be greatly appreciated.

This is how I do it. Throttle cable first. Have an assitant press the pedal to, but not through, the kickdown switch, then turn the adjuster nut so the throttle opens to the stop on the housing without overstressing the cable. Release the pedal and turn the adjuster inside the car (on the cable inner at the bulkhead) so there is 0.5 to 1mm play where the cable is connected to the linkage on the throttle body. Check the first adjustment again and make sure the microswitch operates when the cable is fully released.

Adjust the transmission control cable so the two pointers on the linkage align, if there is any wear in the linkage to the throttle it helps to take up any free play with a finger on the bit the throttle cable is connected to so the disc on the throttle shaft is about to move and hold it while making this adjustment, otherwise you may get harsh shifting when accelerating gently.

Thanks Mick!

BTW, when I was a very small lad, I lived in Surrey. Hardly remember except for Nanny Jones who watched my older sister and I.
