FMX Transmission issues
I continue to have FMX transmission issues. I had to open it up when I had it out to replace the o-rings around the shifter lever and the kickdown lever. Can't get the kickdown rod to fit, but now I think I put the kickdown lever on the transmission side back in wrong somehow. How much play should be on the kickdown lever attached to the transmission? I have a lot of play and it doesn't seem right. Looking at pic 1 and 2 I believe the natural position of the lever should be lower which means the rod would fit. In pic 3 you can see the kickdown lever against the body which shows how much play there is which makes me suspect its in wrong cause I wouldn't think the lever has that much play... any help any suggestions?

Does this help? I can try and take a better pic tonight if you need it.

73 conv. 460, D0VE large valve heads, Performer RPM manifold, Voodoo 227/233 cam, Holley 950 HP carb, C6 trans, 3.25 trak-loc.
Maybe this can help:
Can you tell me how much the kickdown lever moves there on the transmission? Mine moves a lot and I don't think it should. Good pics...your lever is not in the same position as mine Smile
Finally got inside the tranny today. What we found out when we replaced the o-rings on the shifter and kickdown was that the valve body had a piston that the kickdown lever had to be in-between. Pictures would have never caught that and thankfully we figured it out. Wasn't easy but wasn't hard...just meticulous...so happy to get it fixed...two more weeks and my full off frame restoration will get painted...woohoo!
