my flywheel dust cover is missing aswell and i dont know whether this has an affect on this issue but will be getting 1 anyway.
could this be a vacum line drama? (i've checked it and it looks ok)
could this be a diff issue?
Will Not idle in gear is an engine problem. Perhaps mixture adjustment? Idle speed? Is the engine stock or high performance camshaft ?
Is the vacuum line for the trans hooked to direct manifold connection? Should be hooked directly to intake manifold, not spliced into other vacuum lines
Is the detent - kick down Cable from the trans hooked to the carb and adjusted for full pull at wide open throttle ?
