Great! I've found that the 727 in my Hall downshifts according to engine timing as well as the control rod. Could have something to do with torque loading, but I'm not sure.

I found out how to ajust the kick down rod for the 727 trans 

Adjust the rod so that when the throttle is wide open the rod is all the way to the rear of the transmission I got this froman old school  mechanic 

The trans now shifts like it should

Yes, but there are other factors involved! Downshifting is usually what you WANT to happen to avoid lugging the engine so is there some other reason you want to bypass this?

I think you can find that info in RV Manuals at the top of the page.
