linkage controls throttle valve in transmission.
controls line pressure/shifting

run without one and trans. will slip, create heat.
clutch packs/bands will wear rapidly.
it'll also shift very poorly.

they can pop off, easy to make it correct, I wouldn't rely on an rtv booger.

Huh, good to know. I'm not worried about it falling off, it was still work to get the plastic circular thingee on there, goop was just added measure just in case. I'll look into the solution you provided there though.

Rob - Thanks so much for documenting your install....so helpful. I've just received my kit and will be installing this weekend. Quick question - what did you do with these connectors that plugged into the original carburetor??

The large long curved pipe you have circled on the left is the PCV, which is shown in the diagram I have in post #43. It goes to both port-A and the vacuum canister purge signal nipple.
The one you have circled in the middle isn't a vacuum connection. Take the 2 bolts off and you'll see it's merely a bit of piping that assists in warming the choke a bit quicker than it otherwise would without it. You can actually remove the entire thing, as there are no provisions for it with the Howell kit.

Hey, MysticRob, am finishing up an EFI rewire to move the ECM inside & A/C refurbishment & am having an issue with the EFI harness hitting the wiper frame under the dash. Followed your lead with where I drilled the hole in the firewall, and routed the harness toward the drivers side & looped back to passenger side Oslo get the bottom edge of the dash - ECM is mounted with Velcro behind the dash just over the evaporator. Also, sized down the provided wire loom from 1-in to 3/4-in & am still having an issue.

Did you see this? Any tips/tricks?

Looks like 3rd time is the charm. Rerouted the harness thru the radio area vs near the wipers & it appears to be all good now. Had to relocate the ECM slightly to the left to account for less slack.

Glad you got it figured out! There isn't much room under the dash on these things for sure. At some point I'll need to get back up under there myself and reposition just a bit as I can occasionally hear the wiper armature scraping the plastic harness loom too. Plus I need to replace the AC hoses to get my aircon back up and running.

True/true. Just got everything put back today. The a/c air box is crazy tight to get back in. Am planning on writing a post on the adventure of rewirng the EFI & a/c refresh - been collecting pix for a post; just never seemed like I had enough of a story til it was back together. Was more of a 2 steps forward & 1 step back til now.
