    Hey what's up guys I have a question to ask. I have a edlebrock 1406 carb with the 700R4 trans. The current throttle setup on my truck is a cheap POS so I got the lokar corrector bracket throttle cable and kickdown cable. Has anyone used this setup? And if so how should I go about hooking everything up? Just need some pointers I just want this thing to be on point and don't have much to work with as for as instructions.
    Thank you in advance or at least a thread play by play for the complete instal

    Is this the stainless steel kickdown kit? If not, do you have a PN? Haven’t used it, but I’ll see what I can figure out, if anything, on my end. At least until someone who has replies.

    that is not a kick down cable to the trans, having it adjusted incorrectly will burn up your trans.

    Throttle valve cable. What part are you trying to replace mainly? The throttle linkage setup I’m guessing?

    Yes the linkage at the carb with the bracket and cables. I just wanted to know where to start. I never have done it before just wanted some info before I go tearing more shit up.
