Been a while since I played B&W 'repairman' :-) But IIRC the kickdown cable is the system hyd pressure control valve.
Tighter 'ups' the pressure (harder shifts as a short answer) and looser lowers it.
It V sensitive to adjustments. A cheapo aftermarket dashboard type Oil pressure gauge from the parts store makes a usable 'hillbilly' pressure gauge. Certainly 'good enough' for this Steam age contraption.
But then your last diagnosis symptom is contradictory to a cable /pressure adjustment.
Best to dump & refill the ATF a ..Couple.. of times as a fairly simple shot in the dark at "fixing" it.
Always wondered on these things. Jaguars had virtually the same trans fitted. Yet suffered far fewer issues (owned a few) Go figure.
