    Default Dodge Transmission Kickdown

    I have a 650 cfm 4150 series. I'm finding that these carbs don't work with Dodge automatic transmissions. I have a A500 or 904 with OD.

    I'm not familiar with Mopar transmission throttle valve/kickdown cables, however, I've
    successfully used the Lokar brand cables on various Holley carburetors & EFI throttle bodies:

    What warning?
    Which transmission?
    Is this a TV cable or a kickdown cable?
    What exactly is not functioning correctly? Geometry, length, piece fitment, etc.?

    EDIT: I think I found the warning you're referring to: http://www.holley.com/data/types/pic...s_IntoZOOM.jpg
    If so, you just need to remove that lower linkage bracket and fabricate a similar flat plate with a hole for the Lokar cable.
    Some carburetors I've used in the past claimed they weren't for Ford AOD usage, BUT I made them work great with a slight modification/fabrication. Holley's carburetor warnings are there because not all their models are factory equipped with the provisions for all vehicle makes. You'll also need a spread-bore intake manifold.
