The TV cable will stay as is. It regulates the line pressure under load and without it the transmission would have premature failure.

What should I use with a a 1977 chevy 4x4 with a TBI and swapping in a 700r4 from a th350? To lock-up or not?

Without this kit your converter will not lock up and give the additional rpm change the transmission is designed for. Whether 4x4 or regular pickup the later years ran the 700 R4 and utilized the lock up feature. The manufacturers always warned on towing heavy loads and not using the lock up feature and actually recommended not to use the OD when towing. Depending on application desired the lock up kit would be a good choice to lower rpm at highway cruise speeds.

how well will this kit work on a vehicle that is equipped with a cam that has a good amount of overlap, since it requires vacuum to operate?

This wiring kit from Painless Wiring enables the customer to get the lock up advantage of the 700R transmission with a carbureted engine. Used extensively on the hot rod market even a cam with higher lift, duration, and overlap should still produce sufficient vacuum to enable the vacuum control switch to function properly. You may want to visit with Painless direct for specific requirements.

B&M 70265 Super Cooler Polished Aluminum Transmission Oil Cooler
(Part #20070265)
                        

The last thing you need in the middle of a race or a road trip is to have a transmission or engine go south because your oil cooler can't keep up. B&M's SuperCooler oil coolers will keep your transmission or engine cool and running in your time of need. They're made of lightweight aluminum, with an efficient "stacked plate" design. Multiple cooling paths give them the cooling capacity of larger fan-and-tube coolers. And, because they have a low pressure-drop design, there is less oiling-system restriction.

100% brazed construction provides superior strength and minimum overall size. Stacked fin and plate design is 33% more efficient than the same size tube-and-fin cooler.

Measures 4-1/2" x 11" x 1-1/2" thick with female 1/2 NPT ports.  Cooler efficiency rating of 7,500 BTU.

Book - GM Automatic Overdrive Transmission Builder's & Swapper's Guide
(Part #28178140)
                        There's an important component standing between  your engine and your drive wheels: the transmission. Inside that metal  case is a bewildering array of gears, bearings, seals, and more. The  automatic transmission is a miracle of modern engineering, but it can  also be a source of trouble. If your transmission breaks down you're not  going anywhere, and if it's just not working properly, your car will  never realize its performance potential.

In this book, expert mechanic and drag racer Cliff Ruggles demystifies the popular GM 700-R4 and 4L60 automatic transmissions. Keeping the enthusiast in mind, Ruggles explains the history of these transmissions, presents critical identification guidelines, and leads the reader through the complete disassembly, repair and upgrade, and assembly processes. DIY-ers will learn how to test their transmission to ensure its proper operation before installing it in the car.

This book includes information about high-performance modifications, both from the factory and the aftermarket. These include internal parts and external components such as shift kits and torque converters that will help you make your transmission perform at its best. It also covers common installation issues such as mounting, shifters and linkages, wiring harnesses, and more, and includes a special section by Ro McGonegal on swapping these transmissions into earlier performance and musclecar chassis.
