Hi, I am installing an aftermarket transmission kick down cable, similiar to the one made by lokar, and am not sure how to set up the tension initially? I have the lokar braket on my carb and one end of the cable already attatched to the transmission. I am just trying to finish the other end on the carb. If anyone could help with the initial adjustment of the cable i would appreciate it. Thanks

Ford says that the cable should be tight enough to pull the trans kick down lever fully forward at full throttle. B&M Performance Transmission told me to have the lever full forward at 3/4 throttle. If the cable gets adjusted anywhere before that, the kickdown will be engaging too soon and too often. I adjusted my cable to fully engage just before full throttle, as the 3/4 setting was engaging too soon for my liking and if the cable tightens too soon, it can prevent the throttle from fully opening.

Wow, two posts, two responses, and they were both from you. I might as well just be asking you these questions, ha, thanks
