    Thanks drdoom, I actually think its a 3l80 hd (the same thing). Just wondering its adverse effects if not used if any, and if you actually need to use it. I suppose you could just use a micro switch on the pedal if needed?

    Hydramatic made a TH375 that was a TH400 with a TH350 splined output shaft. They came in mid sized BOP cars in the late 70's. They held one less friction clutch in the forward and direct drums. They had TH375 cast into the bottom of the extension housing, and the rear seal was the same as a TH350.

    early 70s maybe? And they also had TCS so it might have a two pin connector on the side of the transmission, instead of a single pin. Make sure you get the right one, as the TCS terminal shorts to ground when it shifts into high gear

    Kickdown is nice....I always add the switch on the carb linkage.
