Is this what you need Travis?

Transmission Shift Control Cable

1. From inside the vehicle, place the gearshift lever (7210) in the OVERDRIVE position (E4OD). Hang a three-pound weight on the gearshift lever.

2. Raise vehicle on a hoist and position suitable safety stands under vehicle.

3. Remove the shift cable from the transmission lever ball stud.

4. Pull down the lock tab on the shift cable body.

5. Position the gearshift lever in the OVERDRIVE position (E4OD). This is three detents from the front-most lever position with the first position counting as one.

6. Connect the cable end fitting to the transmission lever ball stud.

7. Push up on the lock tab to lock the cable in the correctly adjusted position.

8. Remove safety stands and lower vehicle from hoist. Remove the three-pound weight from the gearshift lever.

9. CAUTION: Under no circumstances should the cable be adjusted in any position other than (D) (OVERDRIVE) for the E4OD automatic transmission.

After making the adjustment, check for park engagement. Check the gearshift lever in all detent positions with the engine (6007) running to make sure of correct detent/transmission actions. Readjust if necessary.


Shift Indicator Cable

1. Remove the four screws from the lower steering column shroud. Remove the lower steering column shroud.

2. Rotate gearshift lever (7210) clockwise until it bottoms out in first gear.

3. Rotate gearshift lever counterclockwise three detents (overdrive position).

4. Hang a three-pound weight on the gearshift lever.

5. Center pointer in the middle of (D) OVERDRIVE position, by rotating the thumbwheel located on right-hand side of steering column actuator housing.

To align the transmission range sensor on the case: Put tranny in neutral remove lever and cable. Loosen sensor mount bolts. A special tool is used to align the slots while rotating sensor. If you dont have the tool, aligning the slot in the ring and the other slot in the sensor by eye will work. Retighten bolts. Put lever and cable back on. Hope this is what you needed.
Other names for the range sensor are MLPS and neutral switch. Once the case lever is removed and dirt is cleaned, the slots can be seen easy.

Why will the TRS not come off the Trans ? W2 bolts and lever removed. Tried lining up the hash marks for neutral on the outer and inner circles. ? Anyone got a picture or some guidance on what exactly what it looks like to line up and slide off?

Thanks, Joe.

It doesn't have to be aligned with anything to slide off. Alignment only makes it work right. Instead of asking for pictures, POST pictures of the one you're working on.
