Remove the cable on the transmission end. There is a little hook sticking out. Take a piece of 1/4 or 3/8" fuel hose and a little permatex and jam it in the hole around the hook. Take a bolt and stick it in the other end of the hose and put a hose clamp around it. Zip tie to something so it doesn't move. I had it this way for 3 years and it didn't leak a drop. I did it while trans was in the vehicle.

The "right way" is to pull the pan and remove the linkage/hook from the inside. Then tap one of the little freeze plug in the hole from the outside. My trans guy did this after I burnt it up and went to him for rebuild.

The quick way is just to unhook it from the carburetor, loop it, and shove it down the trans tunnel :)

Damn thing is already in the car. but yeah who wants to be that goon
I have oiled down the track many times but never from the kickdown hole. Lots of torched pistons. I had a pinched o-ring once on the accumulator and every 1-2 shift it would squirt trans fluid out the side. I resealed the pan a ton of times thinking that's where it would come from. Lol

Try removing the trans crossmember and slowly lowering the tailshaft. That's what I did. A mirror helps too.

if you have an old cable you can cut the housing about 2 inches up and seal it with RTV. there is no pressure there unless your vent is not working

Welch plug is fine if properly fitted, they work fine in your block with pressures exceeding 16psi if you have a high pressure cap, besides, you should have a vent going to a puke tank that prevents any case pressure.
Tap and pipe plug. I don't want to be the guy that oils the track.

think i will buy a cheap cable for now and cut it. I will have it back out this winter and will do it right.

Thanks for the help.

Or turn up a little plug with an o ring groove and then use a plate on the original fitting to secure it. If you ever want to reuse the KD cable, remove it and the jobs a good one. I also converted this to a side fill so I didn't have a fill tube on my fire wall.

Amazed that after 35 years puttering with race trans applications there are still folks who spend time with this pos. Amazing I tell you.
