Ok I think I figured out what you are saying, you want to convert a long shaft c6 to a short shaft c6. To remove the tailshaft I think just about the entire trans has to come apart. And make double sure your bellhousings match. If you have a diesel sell that car trans and rebuild yours.

Remove your kickdown rod (with the vrv it isn't needed mines been off for 3 years) and tip the vrv on the side of the injection pump a little at a time until you are satisfied. The VRV should need to tilt towards the front of the truck.

Mine is '83 F250 6.9. I too have developed the shift into/outof 3rd at 45mph problem.
After reading the first page of this I checked and found:
My pump is maintaining 20+ Hg.
The top port of the VRV holds 0 Hg. So I guess it's hosed.

I have broken one of the VRV adjustment clamping screws and can't get the other to budge. Steel screw in white metal and apparently no anti-seize. Have PB Blaster-ed it a few times over the last few of months. I guess I could go ahead and put some heat on it to break the screw loose and not worry abut melting the VRV if I am going to replace it anyhow,
Is there other plastic that could be damaged back in there?

Also - I had an idea and just connected the vacuum supply to the trans modulator line and I get good shifting!
Why does this work?
Will the 20 Hg ruin the modulator?
