Question about Chevrolet Cars & Trucks
There is a lock on the end of the cable that goes to the carburetor. You have to depress the lock which is usually stainless steel in color. After you release the cable lock, pull the cable case backward. You then get in the vehicle and step on the accelerator with force. This will set the cable. To make the vehicle shift sooner, move the cable case at the carburetor forward. To shift later, press that lock again and pull it backward. The adjustment is quite sensative so only move the cable case a click or 2 in either direction.

SOURCE: detent cable
If it is kicking down too soon into passing gear you have to adjust it out, if you can floor it and it won't kick down then you have to tighten it. Could be a couple different ways, but probably on the bracket that holds it and the throttle cables is two nuts that can used to let it in or out. If is a stationary mount, they do sell after market kick down cables, or you can modify yout self. I've seen many old trucks with a cable that "stretched out". Bracket bent, or the spring gave out on the mount and the cable is now long, use a small nut, and bolt in the front of the cable hook up to make it shorter. Just use a lock washer if ou do this.
