kickdown cable on th350

I have a th350 and small block chevy in my 83 CJ7. How do I properly adjust the kickdown cable for the tranny? I have it disconnected completely and the tranny still seems to function normally. Is its only purpose to shift from 3rd to 2nd under acceleration, such as when passing. With the gearing and tire size that I have it is almost unneccesary to downshift. The rpms are already up there when in 3rd gear. Also, I have a B+M shifter that ratchets. Is there any reason I can't shift it mannually? Is this bad for my tranny? It is stock, but I am installing a shift kit soon.

Re: kickdown cable on th350

I do not have mine connected either. I also have a B&M shifter and just shift manually. Will not hurt anything. I like it better that way. That way it doesn't shift down when I don't want it to. Running 35" tires with 4.11 gears, I like for it to shift when I want it to shift (down) so I don't blow out my weak d35 rear axle.
