Well you could have missed the vacuum line that goes to the modulator on the transmission. It has to get unrestricted manifold vacuum. Also, the throttle valve linkage from the carb to the transmission may be off or just missing a return spring. Give a good look around and I'm sure toy'ii find one of the two.

Hello There

Your transmission fluid needs changing. There are two bolts on the transmission one directly underneath the trans for draining and aother one on the side for refilling the fluid, the one on the side is also used to top up the fluid.

If you haven't changed the fluid in a while then it's best to get it changed.

Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate me.

Many Thanks

SOURCE: Pulsating gas pedal in low speeds, if you go really easy on the pedal untill ~25, it will not pulse at all.

Make sure the carb is bolted tight to the manifold too. Loose nuts can cause this.

I have a 1965 mercury comet with a 289 v8. I want to know what type of differential I have in it so I can buy a new cover for it

Here are the spec's for the 1965 mercury comet, 289 V8:

For 1965, the Comet Cyclone was powered by the V-8 with 225hp, the same engine that was put into Mustangs. And for more power, there was a special high-performance package, better known as "Hi-Po," available with the Cyclone, and it shared the 271hp V-8 which, when installed in a Mustang, was known as the "K" code car. In the Comet, the engine code is "A." When equipped with the Hi-Po package, a 1965 Cyclone came standard with: 289 four-barrel high-performance engine, four-speed Toploader transmission, nine-inch differential, performance suspension, quick-ratio steering and 8,000-rpm Rotunda tachometer. However, the following items were extra-cost mandatory options with the 271hp engine package: four-speed transmission, heavy-duty front suspension, low-profile rayon tires and 42-amp alternator, according to 1965 sales information.

Its a 9-inch differential at best. Try this link for more data:

Dwell angle

200 cid 6 cylinder: dwell 35 to 38 degrees, point gap .024 - .026, initial timing: 6 btdc for manual, 12 btdc for automatic. You'll need a semi-decent dwell/tach - something in the 25 to 30 buck range should do nicely. Good luck.

Transmision stuck in 2nd gear

Either shift linkage or most likely you will
have to pull the trans & replace all the synchros

Other than pulling it out
The trans is fairly easy to do

Ordered a new 65 vette back then
Had it apart all the time, for 8 years
Everything but the body off

Would rather live in the 1960's, than
in this mess we have today

My 66 mustang automatic will not shift into park or reverse

You have ti figure out if the problen is in the transmission or external linkage. This is how you do that. Block the rear wheel and apply the park brake. Disconnect the shifter linkage from the transmission. The shifter should detent in 6 different places, if it does not you have an internal trans issue that should be able to fix by tightening a nut, If it does then you have something broken or most like loose in the linkage.

1965-transmission feels loose and shaky when i use shifter

If the shift lever (the part you use to change gears) feels like it's wobbling too much from side to side then the bushings in it's mount are worn out. Rebuild kits are available from most Classic Mustang supply houses like CJ Pony Parts, Macs and others. This is a simple repair that does not require dropping the transmission. Remove the console and/or shifter plate. This exposes the shift lever mount. A couple of wrenches and 20 minutes and you're done. Don't forget some white lithium grease. Expect to pay between 20 and 30 bucks depending on which shifter and transmission you have.

What is the right placement for the kickdown lever on a 1965 transmission. Thanks

I presume you mean the correct adjustment.... My preference is to have the shift points come a little late...

the correct adjustment is somewhat subjective, but when driving along, easy throttle, and come to a slight incline, the trans needs to shift down at some point, adjust until it does. Not enough means you really have to press the throttle, too much means the shift happens too early...

It is forgiving within those parameters...
