    Just had my buick 425 rebuilt the guy who did the rebuild left the exhaust manifold vaccum and the transmission stator and detent switch off, of the ss650vs quick fuel carb. with electronic choke, also i have no passing gear i know its because of the stator and detent switch. he said that i needed a electric idle control on the transmission, is this true? Can i not just use the stator and detent from the original setup?

    Yes,,, you can.... sounds like he lost the parts and trying to cover....the original factory set up is ''electronic'' and works just fine when it is adjusted correctly....The factory switch gives you high stall in the converter at idle position and then again at 3/4 or so throttle.... in a pinch you can use a wire off of your brake light switch to give you high stall at idle... and a toggle switch to give you h/s all the time... this gives you 2 reverse speeds and 6 forward speeds.....if the trans is a th400.... if it is a sw. pitch 300 you will have 4 forward speeds....

    What trans?
    If it's a 65-66 ST300 or ST400, It's a simple setup.... there are 2 elec connections on the side of the trans....just apply 12v to one terminal for passing gear, and 12v to the other one for the hi-stall.

    A '64 ST400 doesn't have a switch-pitch convertor. There's only one connection for the passing gear.

    I got mine wired up for the stall thru the brake light switch, but when I take off the converter want lock up instantly. also have the power going thru a toggle switch to turn it off. what am im doing wrong?

    Hello Doc, I just noticed that you are just 45mins away from me its nice to know that there is someone I could get help from in Tennessee. I dropped my car off for a rebuild in april 18th of this year and got it back in Sept. and he said that if I had any problems with it just make a list and call the towing company and now its at this guys shop who always straighten out his messes. I just got the phone with him a few minutes ago and he is still puzzled about the carboretor, he told me that he got set for cold start where it will start just by turning the key (without pumping gas) and doing that it will not stay running while the car is in gear, he said that it will stay running for at least 30 sec. If you know of anyone who works on nailhead engines let me know. Thanks Tmarchtheman
