We didn’t get so lucky with the kick-down linkage stud. Again, we used the one from the original carb, but had to slightly enlarge the hole in the carb’s linkage to bolt it in place. We’ve since learned that Edelbrock has a variety of tranny kickdown studs (PN 8018) that bolt right on to its carbs. A cordless drill and a variety of bits got us to the right fit. The slight mod worked well and we connected the TV cable followed by a quick self-adjustment of the cable (necessary with a TH700-R4).
