I noticed in moving it around my driveway that the tranny seemed to be slipping a little. In further investigation I noticed the there was no tv cable hooked up on the car. My question's are would the missing cable cause this delay in going into gear and slipping, And is there a special way I have to hook up the cable due to there being too carbs. i would appreciate any input... Thanks
Yes the TV cable will cause major problems since this it what controls the trans pressures do not try and drive the car without one you will toast the transmission! Many people make the mistake thinking that it is a kickdown cable which it is not
There are many good post about doing this set up and there are several vendors that sell kits to hook up to different intake combinations one of these I like is bowtieoverdrives.com.
