    Default Linkage from throtle to trani

    I have just swaped out a 304 in my '76 travler with a 727 trani and perty sure the linkage adjuster was turned and I thought that I got it back to the right spot but it doesn't want to shift into third gear until around 50 MPH and I usually have to let off the gas. When cruising around town it likes down shift every time I give if gas. Is there any little secrects or is it all trial and error until it shifts right?

    Take the kickdown linkage rod completely off. Take note of where both the hook-ups for the carb and the transmission are. When you're at idle to mid-range throttle, the linkage shouldn't be pulling the transmission hook up at all. It's only supposed to pull the transmission when you open up the carburetor completely.
