TH350 Kickdown cable ???

I can't seem to find a kickdown cable that works for my th350..

The old one is shot, so I go to a local tranny parts store and they give me some sort of universal cable for the 350 and 200 I believe..

It doesn't work because the tunnel I guess it's called that the Metal piece in the tranny slides into is too small.. I look at the old one and notice that it's tunnel or opening at the end of the cable it much larger than the universal one..

I went too some more stores and they all had the same one as the universal so how do I find one that fits..

Thanks in advance

this aint answering your question but my tranny guy told me I didn't need it if I didn't mind manually downshifting. No problem with me and one less thing to hook up so I told him to leave it off. maybe thats an option for ya?

You dont really need one. At least I dont. Whenever I want to pass, or feel its bogging down I just manually downshift, then upshift. Works for me.
Run what you brung, hope you brought enough.

GM, chevy dealer is where I found mine. Price wasn't bad.

I'm going without one myself, but I'm running a tci reverse manual valve body.
Without a kickdown cable, I've found that th 350's shift harder.
