kicking down...
« on: August 02, 2008, 05:42:58 PM »


without me crawling under and adjust the portion on the trans... what is up with adjusting the kick down my car... i understand you have to hold the throttle open, and push the slider.... and then retighten the nut... maybe im missing something, because i've tried three positions and nothing seems "right".

but ever since i put the eddy on... its shifting kinda funny... a real quick 1.2. shift... the secondaries open for only what seems like a second... and flooring on the highway results in nothing more than a slow acceleration...

car is running much better, but this odd shifting is annoying and probably no good...

Yer gonna blow up the trans!!
You got it backwards!!
With the throttle CLOSED,and choke OFF pull back the kick down rod toward the front of the car as much as possible TIGHT! then tighten down the nut on it.
Understand? No? Studying law,eh?
 maybe a FSM should be a cakewalk to read and understand compared to all thos legal jargon loaded books you are trying to study.<sigh>
 
Like Playboy,it is easier to look at the pictures than read the text....

I've always adjusted mine at wide open throttle....Choke off, the open carb to full travel, then push back on the kickdown and adjust until it slips over the rod.   The back the kick down rod off a little bit and you should have it close...will need to fine tune it a bit one way or the other tuntil you get the tranny to feel right.
 
Some times you might need to do some major adjustments...either at the tranny or elsewere to get the basic adjustment in place but once that's done....
