4.2 to TF-727 (kick-down linkage)

Where is the kick-down linkage on a TF-727 and what does it look like? Can I use a linkage that went to a 360 on my 258?

Hey, I'm an Old Hand now. Funny, I don't feel any smarter [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

Restoring a '74 DJ-5C [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img] Its missing the alternator. At first the Ammeter gauge just didn't work but now its missing an alternator [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Hey there Sycho,
the linkage from the 360 won't work on your 258. the 360 has a hinge point that bolts to the back of the head on the drivers side. The one on the 258 is one piece model that has a few bends to it.
I have one for a 258 if you need it, actually I would trade you for the one that you took off the 360 if you would do that.
If you want to do this just e-mail me at my home address. [email protected]

I don't think the stock 360 linkage will work either. It wouldn't work in my CJ (smashed against the firewall - wouldn't work properly). I ordered the kickdown cable from Summit Racing - it helps with installation a lot, and works well.

'82 CJ-7/360/727/D300/M.O.R.E. shackles and lots of ideas!

Have you kissed your JEEP lately?
