I want to apply the recursion relation
v = p/2 - (743 v^3)/1008 + (8 \[Pi] v^4)/5

But when I use this command to get recursion, the recursion is taking place only in the v^3 term, leaving the v^4 term as it is.

Here's what I am getting

v =p/2 + 1/2016 743 (Hold[p/2] + 1/2016 743 v^3 - (4 Pi v^4)/5)^3 - (4 Pi v^4)/5

Clearly recursion is taking place only in the v^3 term and v^4 term is just being carried along.
Please tell me a way to include recursion in v^4 term as well.

Here I am showing only one recursion for simplicity, you can see the attachment to get a better idea where I set the recursion limit to 20.

Thanks in advance!
