    Doesnt a TH350 use a vacuum line for kickdown or is there an actual cable too?

    A TH350 uses a detent cable. Easy to replace and under $ 20.00. Makes me wonder why i waited 6 months to fix mine.
    You have 1 bolt to remove on the tranny end and pull out the old cable, grab the end of the wire that the cable is hooked to, rotate it and it is off. Hook up the new cable, push it back into the tranny and replace the bolt. The carb end is simple..

    hell, come one down to my place tomorrow and I'll help you do it. While your at it, stop by andrews place and get those damn u-bolts from him so i can get his rear axle installed (and you can stay and help with that also /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif ) /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    Did andrew find the brake parts he needed yet? I didnt make it down to that yard yet but will be in there tomorrow and can probably get it for him... I think I still have his phone # though and will probably just have to call him.
