    This may not make any sense to any of you, but hopefully someone somewhere will know what i am talking about. Well, I had this home made bracket for my acclerator cord, when i bought my second "new" engine, it worked like a charm. But i didn't take it off when i traded engines. Now i have this universal bracket that won't let me get much if any passing gear. I was wondering if anyone had one of these homemade jobs or knew how to do it. Thank you

    ..........and one time at band camp.........

    If your feeling brave try adjusting the cable slightly to the left to tightin it. If not, take it to a local tranny shop and have them adjust it. I tryed to adjust mine after I just put it in my truck and it shifted fine until I opened the carb up all the way and then it wouldn't shift anymore because either the governer hung up or a value is in backwards. I dunno, it's still at the tranny shop cause when the guy was testing it the motor started knocking so looks like im out another 200 bucks that i aint got, oh well its all in fun.
