Post 700r4 w/Edelbrock 3500 EFI

I have a 406 (Chev) with a stage 3 Bowtie 700r4, and and Edelbrock 3500 EFI unit. Nobody makes the TV linkage to hook these 2 units together. Edelbrock makes a Mount #8031 which I have, but there is no satisfactory connection to the EFI.. Has anybody set up this system, or had similar setups that may be able to help. Thanx JimC.

I am presently looking at my personal copy of EDELBROCK'S catalog (aquired since the local speed merchant was more disfamiliar with the EDELBROCK carb than I was) and see a photo of the 3500 in question.

The throttle body seems to have a place (eyelet in throttle valve arm) to mount EDELBROCK PN 8018.

Look in your catalog and see what you think...

I am installing the Edelbrock 3507 on a 383 with the 700R4. Edelbrock tech suggested Lokar Performance Products, which I already have on a 327/Quadrajet/700R4 setup, however, the SRK-4000 stainless steel throttle cable bracket must be slightly modified to work properly. I have met with the Lokar people with pictures of the set up and they have started working on a new bracket for the EDL 3503 and 3507. They did say several people have used their setup and have not identified any problems. In the intrim, I am making a stainless tab to provide the correct results. Check out www.lokar.com.

The new overdrive transmissions are great - some of the best technology comming out of Detroit - but if they aren't set up perfectly they will fail, guaranteed. Just look at the posts on this bulletin board for evidence of frustrated do-it-yourselfers.

My advice is go to the site listed below for the parts and advice yoou need to set yours up correctly. The TV cable is critical, not like a Turbo-400 where you just slap it onto the carb link and slide it back and forth 'til you like the shift point. These guys make it easy but expect to pay about $100 for the parts you need to do it right.
