As far as I know, the kickdown cable on my '71 TH350 is original -- everything else on the car seems to be, except for what I've modified. But I don't see a "gate" or "tab" behind where the cable mounts to the linkage. Can someone post or email me with a picture of what the "gate" or "tab" is supposed to look like?
I'm swapping in a new motor, and want to make sure I have the kickdown adjusted right. I installed a new Edelbrock carb, with an aftermarket adjustable linkage. Right now, it's set about halfway through the adjustment. Kickdown is loose at idle position, and becomes "springy" at about half throttle position, and "tight" at WOT. Does this sound right?
