I understand that there is a switch that activates the TCC solenoid that sometimes needs adjustment. What does it look like and what's the best way to adjust it?

Should be part of the brake light on most or sometimes with cruise it is separate but mounts next to the brake light switch.
Where the brake light switch is adjusted to come on when brake is applied the tcc switch turns off when applied. Should be the purple wire.

I checked it out and it appears that the brake switch threads are worn out so I ordered another brake switch. Also, if I lift the brake pedal while driving I can get the TCC solenoid to work.

That could be you have brake problems.
Can be as simple as pedal bushings are worn.
Pedal pivot is easy on auto trans.
Stick can be hard/impossible to remove the pivot. Same pivot used by both pedals.

Automatic without cruise control, super easy to swap out. I was thinking brake pedal issues at first but it appears that the switch threads have been wore down a bit and by pushing it towards the tab on the pedal I could easily move it. Pedal play appears to be fine but It's tough to get under the dash, may have to remove the seat!

Swapped out the ignition switch and the brake light/ TCC switch, works great! I was having the occasional no start issue so I figured to kill two birds with one stone so to speak. TCC seems to work well and it starts every time instead of every 2nd or 3rd time!
