A buddy of mine picked up a cheap 75 GMC 1/2 ton with a 250 6 cyl. to use for work until he saves enough to buy a new truck. This was a 4 speed which was converted to a Turbo 350. All looks good except the kickdown cable isn't long enough to reach the throttle and even if it was, I can't see how to hook it up without trying to scavenge some new throttle linkage parts for this set up. Other than no "kicking down" of the trans., will it be bad for the transmission if it isn't hooked up? Should I try to pull the cable 1/2 way out and lock it there to simulate 1/2 throtte all the time? Thanks, Eric M.
