I'm getting ready to mount up a TF 727 behind my 258 block with GM TBI. I was reading online the 727 is real picky about kickdown cables.

#1. Does anyone know where I can find a kickdown cable for this set-up with mine being a GM throttle body? 258/727/231.

#2 My AX-15 I pulled out had a tranny support bushing or whatever you call it. Does the TF727 have any sort of support or does it just hang there? I'm guessing it has to have some sort of support.

#3 If it doesn't have any support, what the hell do I do?

#4 has anyone done this conversion? I'm sure someone has.


:confused:

I didnt use the kickdown on mine cuz I put a rev manual valve body in. The adapter on the back of the tranny will have a place for a mount. I made a tube crossmember with bushings at the frame.

I just put a 727 behind my amc 360 with holley projection. The throttle bodies are almost the same. I used a universal 727 kickdown cable. It works great after proper adjustment. It has to be almost perfect to work properly. The cable came with a couple of brackets for mounting. With a little time and minor fab work it went in very easy. I got my cable off ebay for about $15.
