Hello,

On my 1973 350, I replaced my old leaky Holly Carb with a rebuilt original Rochester Quadra Jet 4MV. Even with the old Holly, I never had kickdown. I noticed way under the gas pedal (barely visible unless I'm contorted) is the kickdown switch which comes in contact with absolutely nothing.  Is there supposed to be some type of linkage that is supposed to push the switch up that I don't have.  I have no idea how this is supposed to work or what if anything is supposed to engage it or that I may be missing?????  Can somebody help shed some light on this for me? 

Thanks,

Peter  radioroom@hotmail.com
