that was not an electric kick down for the trans. more than likely it is the idle solenoid for the a/c.
that car should have either a 200-4r or a 700r4 trans in it and stting the tv cable is critical and, with the carb you installed, it is going to need a tv geometry cable corrector and the tv reset for proper operation.
the tv cable needs to be pulled tight when the carb is @ WOT.

What tnsmith said....the TV cable is more than critical to get set properly BEFORE you drive the car or you will be rebuilding the trans. You can find a very informative article on the set up at www.bowtieoverdrives.com
