3 deuce carbs 292 y block

Hello. I have installed a 3x2 barrel carb set up on my 292 cu in. y block the engine is sitting in my 1956 ford mainline the transmission is the stock 1956 F.M The carb linkage is progresive Can someone offer advice on tying this linkage to the throttle pedal and to the trans kick down (I have no problem using a cable system if this works)
Thanks

I don't see how you can kick down a fordomatic with a cable.

My best guess is you will need to use the bell assembly that mounts to the intake and the rod that goes to the trans and the modification would be running you carb linkage off of the bell Assembly.

A foot note, just in case if you took off the tea-pot carbs you will need a 57 or newer distributor.

If you don't have a bell Assembly you can order new ones from classic T-birds in Ohio with the linkage fairly cheap or you might look in junk yards at 58 and newer (I think) to 64 ford trucks with auto, some mount on fire wall and the cars mount on intake, to see what would work best for you.

Also Classic has a tech line and they may be able to offer an idea, when I converted my foromatic to an AOD, they sent me to a junk yard in search of a late 70's Lincoln and that with a locar item, was a simple one day job to make work.

Now I'm not talking down to you or nothing as I don't know what you know about Fordomatics or Y-blocks as they are different all the way around and can be real pain in some areas.

You can drive the car without the kick down rod, most of these rods were never adjusted right as the car aged or the bell assembly developed wear, so did not work anyway.
That is why most people think a fordomatic is a 2 spd, the trans takes off in second unless you nail it and then it shifts to first, depend on rear gear, first is done at 35-40 anyway. So you can shift manually if you want first.

Oops, as I think about this, I'm wrong on the no linkage deal, I think it is needed for proper shifting (not sure), been a while and sorry for the screw up.
