You can use a microswitch at the carb throttle linkage. I recall seeing a wiring diagram online, it's real simple. I see B&M sells a kit for this: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/bm...FQyDnQod8yQACg

The factory '69 Camaro harness connected at the wiper motor:

never seen or knew they made a mechanical kickdown for the TH400. I put a 400 in my 48 chevy pickup and just have a push button switch I can hit when I want it to kickdown. One of these days I will rig it up to the throttle but it works fine for now. Yogi's and other aftermarket places carry setups.
