This crucial piece of linkage is used to activate the passing gear under sudden and heavy acceleration. The correct application is crucial to clear the different firewalls and other transmission linkage parts.

*NOTE*
We recommend when installing a kick down rod that the correct retaining clips be used on the carburetor and transmission to retain the kick down rod. After installation of the rod, check for smooth movement without any binding throughout the full throttle range BEFORE STARTING UP THE ENGINE AND/OR DRIVING the car. Some minor adjusting may be necessary to obtain smooth, unbinding movement. WCCC,inc. is not responsible for damages resulting from improper installation, use in applications other than that specified, or any other conditions beyond our control.

TO ADJUST THE KICK DOWN ROD: ENGINE NOT RUNNING
1) Disconnect the throttle and down shift return springs and disconnect kick down rod from the accelerator shaft kick down lever.
2) With the choke fully open and the throttle blocked in the wide open position, rotate down shift lever on the transmission fully counterclockwise to place it against the throw detent stop (or in other words, in the "kickdown position").
3) Turn the adjusting screw on the carburetor kick down lever to obtain a clearance of .040" to .080" between the throttle lever and the kick down lever when the rod bushing hole lines up with the lever mounting stud. Reconnect kick down rod to lever and install "E" clip retainer on the stud.

According to the Master Parts Catalog, this rod was used on all 1969 Cougars equipped with a C6 transmission which includes the 390IP / 428CJ / 428SCJ. Our research and in hand examples off original Cougars would differ. Because of the different intake manifold used on the 390, Autolite carburetor vs. Holley and different exhaust manifolds we have found that the 1969 390 IP / C6 is distinctly different than the 428CJ and stands on its own by not interchanging with any other Ford product. ...

This rod is correct for the 351 Cleveland 2V only and is approximately 27". A red paint daub was found on this rod, by trying to expose it with steel wool, it was almost erased. This would explain why we rarely find rods with the original paint daub in place. Slightly shorter than the 4V rod and has a lower connection point to the carburetor.

Used on both 351w 2V and 4V FMX transmissions in 1969. Approximately 17-1/2" long with a black color code paint daub on the end closest to the carburetor. This is not correct for any 1970 Cougar equipped with a 351 Cleveland or Windsor motor. *NOTE* Although the MPC lists this part as 1969 only it does in fact apply to the 1970 Cougars equipped with the 351 Windsor two barrel motor. Not only did Ford confuse the public by giving both the 1970 351C 2V and 351W 2V the same engine code "H" in...
