Stupid question,
But to actuate the kickdown on the FMX trans, (1969 351W), it's on the 'pull', right, or when it gets lifted up? VS getting pushed down, is that correct?

It's actuated by pushing down (full throttle)

As I visualize that in my head, it makes sense...Gas pedal goes down, throttle on carb rotates clockwise. Something something pushes the kickdown rod towards the rear of the car, forcing it down, to operate boost pressure. Got it.
This is yet another reason not to leave the country....So you don't have to just think about fixing things, you can actually fix things....
