do you have to run a kickdown cable? and if you dont does that hole have oil coming out of it?

that hole for the cable is open directly into the case... large amounts of trans oil will run out

You don't necessarily need kick-down capability, but you certainly need to seal that hole. If you don't need/want kick-down, you'll have to drop the tranny pan and remove that wire so that you can seal the hole. I used to know the size of plug you need for the hole, but old-timer's is kicking in and I'm not remembering. I'm sure crosley or jakeshoe or one of the other pros can tell you. If your driving style could make proper use of kick-down, then yes, you need a cable and sheath. The fitting at the tranny end of the sheath will have an o-ring. It may or may not completely seal. I had to supplement mine (Lokar) with some silicone.
