Default 65 BONNEVILLE 389 ELECTRONIC KICKDOWN SWITCH - DETENT SWITCH

I NEED A PICTURE OF THE ELECTRONIC KICKDOWN SWITCH SETUP. MY SWITCH IS
NON-FUNCTIONAL AND MY 65 BONNEVILLE CONV 389 WILL NOT DOWNSHIFT. ANY CLUE WHERE
I CAN GET THE SWITCH?. PLEASE SEND CLOSE UP PIC ON THE SETUP, SPECIFICALLY THE
DEPRESSION PLUNGER. IS THERE A RUBBER COVER ON THE PLUNGER?. WHICH CONNECTOR IS
FOR THE TRANS. THE OTHER ONE IS FOR A ANTI POLUTION DEVISE.
ALSO MY BONNEVILLE IS MISSING THE WINDSHIELD WASHER SYSTEM. NO HOSES, BOTTLE OR SPRAY HEARD. I NEED THE PART NUMBERS, SOURCH AND SETUP PICTURES.
HELP.....

The kickdown switch from a 67 up will work better. Its located under the gas pedal instead of the carb.

www.amesperf.com
just look through their online catalog and they'll have kickdown switches for 67+ full size cars. Reproduction switch that goes under gas pedal area. You'll have to mount it on you rown though since as you said the 65'* had the switch at the carb. It'* been done by many
try www.performanceyears.com, they sell the switch too.
Go to PY'* forums and search for kickdown switch and you should see a few threads on the subject as well as one showing many people'* home made installations.

Best to ya,
mike
