Carb question.
 
What is the linkage on the side of the carb for an AOD tranny?
Is it the same linkage already on the car for the kickdown rod?
SAME or DIFFERENT?
 
I have a line on a Ford/Holley 600cfm 4bbl that came off an AUTO tranny truck but the guy does not know if it was from an AOD, C6, C4, etc...
 
WILL it work on the AOD?
The carb attachments will work for either. If you are converting to an AOD you will have to go with a cable for the kickdown. The kickdown rod for a 3spd automatic is useless on an AOD transmission where the "kickdown" is regulated by transmission fluid pressure.

Yes. It would serve you well to reconnect it, especially for passing.

it's not a kickdown, it's 'throttle pressure'. the throttle position via the cable controls the pressure to the apply pistons/clutches in the drums, low pressure and they slip & burn
 
if an AOD trans is run with not enough throttle pressure, you can burn it up on the first test drive
