? about the detent cable on a TH350

Just got a rebuilt TH350 for my 76 GMC, After i slapped it in, i noticed that the little rod thats supposed to be sticking up out were the detent cable goes is not there. I know that the detent is for passing gear, but does it really need to be hooked up to make the rest of the tranny work. I dont have the time to take the tranny back out to do the repair, or maybe i can just pull the pan and put one in myself. I havent had the time to contact the guy to let him know about my prob, plus he's away on a vacation trip. (Please Advise)

It will work ok without it,but, you'll have no kick down shift full and part throttle.

I guess that means that ill just have to pull it down into 2nd by hand if i want to use it as passing gear.

It will also shift at slightly different times. Personally I prefer to run without it, keeps it from going back into 2nd when ya don't want it to. Just don't go for a pass and forget to throw it into 2nd.

I ran one for a while without it, and it just short-shifted 2nd-to-3rd at full throttle. And yes, passing gear was done with the right hand.

would recalibrating the governor for higher shift points make much difference without the passing gear?
