    Should be a kickdown linkage from throttle linkage to the trans, but it's been so long since I played with that I can't tell you details without spending a long time looking for them... I think you should have a rod from the carb throttle to a bracket mounted to the back of the engine (top of Trans B/H) and a rod down to the trans shifter??

    Check your assembly manual for the parts involved ... should be in the PowerGlide option section.

    There is an adjustment procedure in the shop manual. The adjustment also affects shift pressure/firmness, in the same manner that a TV cable adjustment does on a 700-R4 or 200-4R transmission.
