sounds like you need to take a look at shift linkage from carb to kickdown. Is it still there? It is out of whack at least 1/4"--

I was told by a few it could be a vaccume leak goig to the trans, do they have any sort of vaccume controlled componate that assist in changing gears or hydrolic pressur in the trans??? Had it since 1984 but been in storage since 1996.

....no, not the VACUUM MODULATOR???
