THIS IS FOR A MAR 66 METUCHEN 289 2V C-CODE C-4 AUTOMATIC CAR.


I disassembled my C-4 just to do a cosmetic restoration (since I rebuilt it last fall).

After sending the small components out for appropriate plating, and phosphate and oiling the rest, I have it almost back together.

I just want to double check to make sure I have the two external levers pointing the correct way. Exploded views in assembly manuals show a generic picture that doesn't appear to be what I remember.


I AM SURE THAT THE MANUAL KICKDOWN POINTS STRAIGHT UP SO THAT AS THE ACCELERATOR IS DEPRESSED, THE CABLE PULLS THE LEVER WHICH PUSHES THE PIN DEEPER INTO THE VALVE BODY.

I AM PRETTY SURE THAT THE SHIFT LEVER POINTS UPWARD ALSO, SO THAT WHEN THE GEAR SHIFT IS MOVED FORWARD TO PARK, THAT PULLS THE SHIFT LEVER AFT, AND PULLS THE SHIFT PISTON OUT OF THE VALVE BODY.

If this lever were to be pointed down, putting the gear shift in reverse would PUSH the shift piston deeper into the valve body.

Am I correct?
