TH350 Kick down cable

Hey guys! I need to replace the trans kick down cable on my TH350 transmission in my 25 chevy rod, the old cable gave it up. Can this cable be replaced from out side or does the pan need to come off? does anyone have any pictures, diagrams, or suggestions that might help.

You do not have to drop the pan. As you remove the old cable housing from the case you will notice that the inner cable is hooked to a small diameter wire. Unhook the wire from the old cable and rehook it to the new. Install the new cable housing into the trans case. Adjust the cable at the carb so that when the carb linkage is at WOT the kickdown cable is fully extended.

The pan does not need to come off. Just remove the retaining bolt at the trans housing and pull the black plastic up and out. Inside you will see a bent wire connector that (with some wiggling and a twist) disconnects the cable.

#1: can you perhaps explain this "WOT" that appears every now and then? ..

#2: is a must to use the kick down wire on TH350?

Remove or readjust the fitting on the carb end to allow more play in the cable then you should be able to pull it out considerably farther. Or if you're going to trash it anyway, just cut the end off at the carb (save any fittings you may need them later) and pull the housing entirely off the cable so you can see how it attaches.

HEY NOT: For what it is worth, I do not run a kick down cable at all in my street rod on a TH 350. It has a Transco shift kit which allows you to shift and hold any gear anytime and with a long Genie Shifter on the floor it works great...... ..DAVE

I have conciderd that but I have the new cable and all the brackets so just figured might as well use them. I uausll kick it down manually but the bells and whistles are nice.

You should be able to pull it out far enough to see where the cable and wire are hooked together.
