For future reference since nobody has any RH specific write-ups on the adjustment: 46RH Pan service and band adjustment

Its tight there but it is doable.

I used the 3/4" socket to loosen the jam nut. Holding the band adjustment screw with the 5/16" wrench I backed the jam nut way out. I ran the band adjuster screw in and torqued it, then backed it off 3 1/2 turns. I marked one flat side with white paint marker so I could count the turns.

Using the small wrench again, I held the adjuster screw steady and used my left hand finger to run the jam nut back down till it seated.

I then used the socket to tighten the jam nut. Once the jam nut hits bottom you can tighten it and the adjuster screw will not move.

Shifting between first and second is night and day different now.
Yes! This is what I've been looking for. My 1st to 2nd is sloppy and longer than normal. I hope I can do this. Too bad ur in FL. Haha. Thanks for this info.

Or spline drive, does all kind of external fasteners. 4, 6, 8, 12, e-Torx.

The front band adjustment bolt is a pain to get to. Youre gonna need a wobbler and a couple of extensions. some models have a square head bolt. 5/16 8pt or 12pt should do the trick.

What will happen if you tighten too much. I have been callled to a buddys house and I believe he has tightened his to much. There is way to much play in the adjusting screw. I believe he went to far.
Can this be fixed in the drive way or does it need to be removed and rebuilt?

I have a rebuilt transmission on my 94 GC laredo. I am looking to adjust the bands because the shifting is pretty hard and im not totally convinced that my 4.0 is this under powered. does anyone have pictures on how to do it or a guide?
