My 53 Belair has the original (rebuilt) 235 and power glide transmission. Getting a bit tired of transmission fluid leaking all over the place! I have a tri-five rear end/driveshaft and am looking at the 235 adapter plate with starter from Langdon's so I can install a 200R4. I haven't found any information on how to mount the TV cable to the original carburetor linkage. Is there some sort of kit that I can adapt that will work? Thanks!

Leaking has been a problem with the PG, and is kind of normal. Have you researched the leak as there is a cure for it. I am not familiar with the PG but a friend has one and it leaked a lot of fluid mainly due to the way it works. He had a vent installed in the case that cured the problem. The fix is a common one.

I have not seen a kit for the 235 engine, You pretty much need to fabricate or modify an existing bracket to work. Someone has done it before and there are some examples out there.

I am not aware of a bolt-on solution for this issue. With a 53-54 PG car you will have a somewhat easier job than with a manual because of the bellcrank used for the TV linkage. However, you will still have to fab a bracket to mount the cable.

Google Bowtie Overdrive they may have what you need. I have a 292 with a Holly 4 barrel in my 50 with a 700R4 using there stuff, and it works great. Good Luck

Thank you all for the responses. I was hoping I could solve this issue the easy way...yea right! I will revisit this topic the closer I get to the install. Thanks again.

Good luck finding an "easy" way. No one makes a TV cable bracket for a 1 bbl carb. You can take a look at my setup on a 55 235, but a warning!! , it seems to work on jackstands, but I haven't run the trans pressure tests, or road tested it yet. If you find something, please, post it!

I saw a TV cable solution on a 235 that was simple and ingenious. I wish I had saved a photo of it. The bracket anchored on the bellhousing and the cable was actuated at the base of the linkage on the block where the foot feed connects.

I just looked at Tommy’s set up and it is the same as the one I mentioned. The original poster said it worked and I don’t doubt him. Elegantly simple.

I'm running a 700r4 , but also dual Langdon Carter-webers on an Offenhauser intake. I used the two bosses on the intake to make bracket. Also my carb linkage is a combination of what I bought for the Carter-webers and the linkage that came with the Offenhauser set up for dual rochesters

I really like the bracket setup on Tommy's setup. Looks like you made that bracket? Attaching to the manifold boss might be difficult with the original carb. thanks again for the help!

Yes, I made the bracket. I never found a picture of a 235 1bbl TV bracket setup. I just find it hard to believe nobody's done this before, or it's the worlds best kept secret. I have another engine that I'm going to do a "Plan B" design on, something easier to adjust than what I have.

Hi Guys, As Tommy has stated, it is vital to check that however you action the TV cable that you end up giving the correct signals to the transmission.

Failure to get this right can ruin your transmission.
