Hi gang, My '64 has an aftermarket carb (Edelbrock 750). I had no kickdown for a while, so I recently fabricated a simple bracket and hooked up one of these "pull-type" B&M downshift switches: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/bmm-20297 It now works well on the freeway, downshifting to 2nd (and staying in 2nd!) until about 70mph. But for some reason, it won't kick down to 1st. If I'm cruising casually around town, around 30 mph, and then step on it, it will kick down to 2nd but not down to 1st. 1st gear is good up until about 40mph, so I have no idea why it's not kicking all the way down. Any thoughts? Is this an oddity of the ST400 tranny? thanks for any info, jeff
