ultramatic direct drive kick-down, fine throttle adjustment?

Hi folks,

After getting everything back together, and doing the Ultramatic throttle adjustment as best as I can (not having the special tool, I just measured 2.75" using a square, and did the best I could down below, not much room to operate down there around the lever), I note that when warm the Ultramatic direct-drive clutch doesn't like to "kick down" when I smash the throttle. I can get it to disengage at stop, and it seems to engage allright when accelerating from a stop, but it might overall be engaging a little early and disengaging a little late upon deceleration. I was wondering whether there was any fine adjustment I might try.

Thanks in advance...
