Default Accumulator shims too long?

Would the effect of this problem be making me lift off the gas to shift...everything else in the trans seems perfectly fine...it is the only mod ive done to it and so far that seems to make the most sense like the accumulators don't lift enough....but the shims are 1/8" or so shorter than the spring...should i make them shorter?

Lift to shift? Kickdown cable adjustment? Someone else will chime in.

You could shim the accumulators solid, it should still shift on time.

Not really...if i disconnect the cable the car still won't shift unless my foot comes off the throttle....When I did the accumulators the valve body gasket broke so I separated it and replaced the gasket with the Toyota PN as I couldn't find the Volvo PN. I may separate the body and remove the gasket...maybe they aren't exactly the same

Before you go tearing into the transmission, why not set your kickdown cable as directed in the manuals and then report back. I wish the best to your clutches after getting beat on with low line pressure, probably already toast.

I haven't been driving the car for that reason. And when the cable is set to spec I still have the same problem. The low line pressure was used to test to confirm it wasn't the cable.
