    Just converetd my 465/205 to a TH400/208 from a CUCV. There are two wires on the kickdown switch. I'm sure one goes to the tranny and the other goes where? I was thinking eithetr power or ground? Also, which one goes where? TIA!! It's so much nicer not shifting:waytogo:

    1 - Does it NEED to be ignition switch, since it's not on all the time?

    2 - I have an orange wire & a pink w/ black stripe wire. Which one goes to the trannt & which one to the power?

    Thanks.

    The way I'd do it is:

    Ign. Switched off the fuse panel or other source, with in-line fuse to one terminal of the kickdown switch, then the other terminal of teh switch to the plug on the tranny.
