C6 Kickdown cable adjustment
I've been trying to figure out the right way to adjust the kickdown cable for the C6.
The Haynes manual says:
Kickdown mechanisms - removal, installation and adjustment (C4, C5, and C6 only)
Kickdown cable (later models)
15 Ratchet the cable self-adjusting mechanism to obtain maximum outer conduit length.
16 Insert a .060 feeler gauge between the upper cable conduit body and the cable bracket on the conduit side of the bracket.
17 Set the cable length by opening the throttle to the wide open position. The self adjuster should ratchet as the cable outer conduit shortens in length.
18 Remove the feeler gauge to gain proper cable freeplay.
19 Remove the jack stands and lower the vehicle.
Does anyone understand this???
Normally I have no problem knowing where to put my feeler gauge or how to use my kickdown cable but when it comes to this Bronco I gots a problem.
Haynes of course doesn't label their pictures with part IDs so I'm lost.
