Ok....I have been trying to figure out why when you floored my truck when cruising (like passing someone or merging on interstate), it didn't seem to have very much power. At least not enough in my book. I thought it might have to do with the secondaries not opening up on my quadrajet, but they are working from what I can tell. I came to the thought that....well....you know it isn't downshifting either. I then looked at the TH400 kickdown switch located on the gas pedal. It looks like it is not even functioning. Not because it is broken....multimeter confirmed it functions just fine. The problem is that the gas pedal rod doesn't even touch the plastic tube that protrudes out from the switch. Even when at WOT, it's still not touching it. Is it possible that someone put in the wrong one? I have looked online and can't seem to find this kickdown switch for a TH400. I'm still looking though. I had this idea of wiring my own switch that I would engage when I was trying to pass someone or merge onto the interstate. I was thinking of using a momentary on/off switch mounted on the dash. Does anyone see a problem with this? I'm asking because it doesn't seem like these switches are easy to come by and I think it will be pretty cool to have a pushbutton "power" button that would make the tranny kickdown from 3-2 on demand. What do y'all think here? Why is the rod on the pedal not touching it? What about my momentary on/off switch idea?
