    Does anyone know much about the T.V. on the automatic? I want to drop a new 215 in my ’63, but don’t know if I need to keep the carb connected to the trans. Am I able to run a different carb set up without hooking up the T.V.? Is there a way to hook up the T.V. to a non-factory carb? I want to at some point replace the carb altogether and put EFI on. Will I not be able to do that with my automatic?

    Thanks in advance.

    i had a 62 with an edelbrock intake and carb. as long as you have the correct ratio and adjustment you should be able to do whatever you want

    I’ve had an E-brock 500 cfm carb on my 62 for six years now. I fabricated throttle and TV linkages. The TV adjustment was trial-and-error. I simply kept lengthening the TV rod from the carb until the trans shifted and downshifted properly.

    And yes, that’s a Buick motor…
