64 THM Electric Kickdown switch connections: only two at linkage, or more at Tranny?

Hello all.

As I reported in a prior post, I got my car back from the shop and now have a part throttle kickdown. Great! However, either by coincidence or by oversight I now no longer have a Full throttle kickdown (which I used to have after I replaced the switch on the linkage). So, I checked the connections on the linkage and they appear to be good. What I am wondering is whether there are other electrical connectors at the transmission, which may have been disconnected during the repair and not re-attached. I don't have a lift so I cannot check (other than doing it the "Brooklyn way" by driving the car half way in to the street in the driveway and crawling under -which I will do if I have to. 

So, anybody know if there are other connections at the tranny? There does not appear to be a fuse on that line.

(Yes, I do plan to test the switch  with a test light but have not done that yet because it worked fine before I dropped the car off). 

Thanks

The white wire from kick down switch goes to transmission connector. Trace it back to transmission connector and make sure it is attached and no breaks in wire.

Thanks. Approximately where on the tranny does it connect? Near the Modulator or somewhere else.

Noted with appreciation. 

Occam's Razor rules the day: It was a bad kick down switch on the linkage. Shoulda checked it first but it was working just a week ago. 

Thanks for all responses, I learned something anyway.

Posted by Dave Fehrle on March 23, 2024 at 3:23pm 8 Comments

While checking my Carter carb with engine running, I took the air cleaner off and there was a very loud hissing sound of air. I placed a piece of paper over the carb and it didn’t move up or down, is this normal?

Vintage Air AC

Posted by Chase on March 21, 2024 at 5:55am 0 Comments

Hey everyone, has anybody done a Vintage Air AC/Heat setup in their car? I want to bypass the old vacuum setup and go with a Vintage Air Gen 2 model. Before I get started, does anyone have any experience with this? (Which model to go with, do’s and dont’s, etc.) It looks pretty involved. Any and all info/pics would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I would prefer to be as original as possible. Thanks

'63 Eldorado trumpet horn + 2 standard horns restoration

Posted by Les Eastling on November 15, 2023 at 10:34am 1 Comment

My son, unbeknownst to me, had all three of the horns on our 1963 Eldorado completely restored. We had recently added the Eldorado trumpet horn to the two standard horns and the sound was not very good... we had heard good ones so we knew something was not right... but there was not much we could do to get better sound from the 3 horns. 

There is a restoration service called The Horn Works who my son…
