    Cool. I'll show these to the mechanic. Thanks.

    My mechanic said those brackets will not work.

    Here is a photo someone sent me of their 1-684 Crown Vic conversion if it helps.

    But here is what mine looks like.
    Mine appears to be different.

    Which Ford transmission do you have?
    May God's grace bless you in the Lord Jesus Christ.

    AOD is the transmission.

    Oh...it's not a kickdown rod/cable; that's a throttle valve rod/cable.
    When I wrote post #10, I thought you had a Ford C6 transmission (due to your terminology).
    If you can't acquire the proper components, you may need to install an aftermarket T.V. cable kit:

    OK, then throttle valve rod.

    Here you can see the bracket the mechanic had tried to create.

    Would the shape of this bracket make much difference?

    I was reading in Police Cars: Restoring, Collecting and Showing America's Finest Sedans, on page 57-58, that someone doing this same conversion from VV to Holley 1-684, fabricated the hookup for the transmission kick down cable. And they made it using an "L" shaped bracket. My mechanic's bracket is not L shaped.

    Yes it can, because it's all about the TV (throttle valve) geometry of the brackets/levers. 1:1 ratio.
    A lot of people make a bigger issue out of this than it really is (with fluid pressure gauges & such).
    At idle, the transmission TV lever should have just a little bit of preload (not at rest).
    At WOT, the transmission TV lever should be just about fully actuated (no binding).

    Are you referring to the throttle lever bracket or the transmission TV lever?

    (Disregard the red "Kickdown" terminology; it's a TV rod or cable. C6 transmissions use a kickdown rod.)

    Was driving the car back from the mechanic last week, and the car seems underpowered and the shift feels late or a little harder than it should. I took it back to the mechanic for more adjustment. I'm not sure if it's the transmission or if the carb just needs more adjustment.
