Crank the adjuster screws it to 72 INCH pounds, and then back them off some specified number of turns. Spec for that should be in the service manual.

Do like HeyYou says and back off 2 turns. IIRC, that is what MonteC suggests.I could be wrong, Do a search or go get the manual, because I don't want to be responsible for your tranny blowing up.

FRONT BAND
The front (kickdown) band adjusting screw is
located on the left side of the transmission case
above the manual valve and throttle valve levers.
(1) Raise vehicle.
(2) Loosen band adjusting screw locknut (Fig. 73).
Then back locknut off 3-5 turns. Be sure adjusting
screw turns freely in case. Apply lubricant to screw
threads if necessary.
(3) Tighten band adjusting screw to 8 Nm (72 in.
lbs.) torque with Inch Pound Torque Wrench
C-3380-A, a 3-in. extension and an appropriate
Torx socket.
CAUTION: If Adapter C-3705 is needed to reach the
adjusting screw, tighten the screw to only 5 Nm
(47-50 in. lbs.) torque.
(4) Back off front band adjusting screw 2-7/8
turns.
(5) Hold adjuster screw in position and tighten
locknut to 41 Nm (30 ft. lbs.) torque.
(6) Lower vehicle.



so i loosen the nut, i tighten the torque head to 72lbs then back the nut off again then tighten the the torque head again another 30lbs? jus wanna make sure i do this RIGHT haha




REAR BAND
The transmission oil pan must be removed for
access to the rear band adjusting screw.
(1) Raise vehicle.
(2) Remove transmission oil pan and drain fluid.
(3) Loosen band adjusting screw locknut 5-6 turns.
Be sure adjusting screw turns freely in lever.
(4) Tighten adjusting screw to 8 Nm (72 in. lbs.)
torque (Fig. 74).
(5) Back off adjusting screw 2 turns.
(6) Hold adjusting screw in place and tighten locknut
to 34 Nm (25 ft. lbs.) torque.
(7) Position new gasket on oil pan and install pan
on transmission. Tighten pan bolts to 17 Nm (13 ft.
lbs.) torque.
(8) Lower vehicle and refill transmission with
Mopart ATF +4, Type 9602 fluid.

it a TORX bit...sometimes called a star bit.... Chrysler /jeep dodge has been using them for over a decade now....
I'm adjusting my bands today also to eliminat any of the easy stuff before taking it to a shop where the answer is almost always "You need a rebuild".
