65 Transmission Question

Post  rollsman44 on Fri Dec 14, 2012 1:45 pm

The person I purchased it from( Now deceased) had the trans. rebuilt. I put the car in drive and it won't kick into overdrive. What can this possibly be? Thanks

What year TBird are we talking,

If it is that it wont kick down under acceleration then it's probbably the Kick Down adjustment between the Carb and the trans.

That sounds like it might just be that( Kick down adj) I will have my mechanic check it out. I won't know what to look for and I have no lift. Thank you ALL
