89 F150 No Kickdown

I was driving the 89 F150 today, and I noticed that when you mash the accelerator, it doesn't kick down. It will let the motor rev when I get into it, though. Any ideas? I just changed the trans fluid and filter. It's a 351W/C6 combo.

Is the kickdown cable/lever hooked up, does the lever in the trans move freely. If it does, check the vacuum modulator in the rear of the trans on the passenger side just above the oil pan. Pull the hose off from it and check for fluid. if you have fluid coming out or any evidence of fluid ever being there, it needs to be replaced.

The modulator looks good, but it looks like the kickdown cable is out of adjustment. At full throttle, the cable just barely moves (like maybe 1/8"). I'll have to try to remember how to adjust it.
