kickdown on a holley 4160
So the time has come to install the new edelbrock intake manifold (RPM Air Gap) and holley carb...Before I go ahead and take any of it apart and start putting it back together I am trying to figure some things out. So here goes: I want to use the Holley 4160 Carb on the AMC 360. it will have a RPM air gap to go with it. I am going to electric choke, which I just wrapped my head around about how to install. the other thing I am stuck on is the kickdown. Now the motorcraft 2150 I had on before had a simple kickdown with what looked like a sparkplug-looking solenoid. Correct me if I am wrong. The solenoid connected to some wire that ran somewhere, pardon my ignorance. So, I guess my question is...was that the kickdown (the solenoid)? What was the point on the solenoid? Do I need new kickdown cables? Which transmission do I have (this is a stock 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer, stock, so I assume that it is the 727???)? Honestly I am just baffled and I don't want to start working on it and not finish the same day. Sadly, this is my first engine with a carburetor...I got tired of fuel injection and decided to have a car that is a little more simple. I looked at Lokar cables and I don't even know what to buy...I am hoping someone can help me out.
Thanks a lot,
