A Fair Trial
Are you tired of the trial-and-error method of adjusting your TV cable on your 700-R4 and 200-4R transmission? The crew at Bowler Performance Transmission sure was. That's why they developed their own kit, the Tru-Shift system, to solve this problem. To install the new Tru-Shift system, simply bolt on the supplied bracket and carburetor cam assembly, install the Bowler TV cable, then run the accelerator to wide open throttle. The cable will automatically adjust itself and you're done. With this system there's no need to drop the transmission pan, no need to install a pressure gauge to check the pressures, and, best of all, no more guessing. Bowler even included different throttle cable brackets to cover Lokar, Gennie, and GM square and early round hole. Each one attaches neatly to the supplied stainless bracket. Bowler has kits available for Holley, Edelbrock, and Demon Carburetors. For more info, contact Bowler Performance Transmission at 618/943-4856.
