FWIW I am seeing elsewhere where people run w/o the kick down w/o problems, so I don't know what's up w/that. One way to get most of the needed parts is to get a Lokar kit
, but it's pricy. It includes the bracket arm that goes to the tranny. I didn't look to see if there were other kits from the different vendors. The carb needs a bracket, too unless it's already on the carb. Holley sells them IIRC.
I don't think the shift arm you have is for the floor shifter. I seem to remember mine looking a lot like yours, and my Torino came w/a column shifter. At least until I changed it for a B&M floor shifter.
ahh maybe it was column shift im not sure just know it was from a mustang, i search around and read column shift ones the park is up on the linkage and floor shift is down and park for mine is down so just assumed was floor shift,
also im planning on getting a b&m floor shifter to hook the linkage up, was it hard to do? any chance you still have the car and can take photos on how it was done?
