As long as the dipstick is correct for the tranny and tube, add until it's at the bottom of the cold level. Check again after the tranny is hot and add if needed.

Check with the engine running. Shift through all the gears then back to park. Wipe the dipstick and check the level- engine running still.

thank you for your time
The modulator has to be hooked to a full time vacuum source (called manifold vacuum). On a stock TBI, the correct port should be on the back side between the fuel lines (see below). If you have a carb, the port will usually be in the baseplate but check to be sure, especially if you have a Q-jet.

wires

also I took out a 700 and it had a three wire plug on the side that the kick down is on the 400 . should I remove those wires or would it be ok to leave them? if should remove them would you know where they are hooked up at.. i tried to follow them but it is a jumbled mess!
thanks
