    2 spades at transmission and wire goes to the carb area but not connected to anything. It is an aftermarket eddlebrock carb and my guess is that when they converted it they didn't know or try to reconnect it. They also have an electric choke on the carb that they didn't bother to connect. Just kinda thrown together.

    Two spades = switch pitch. So, you will need the detent that shifts the gear down and switches to high stall under heavy acceleration. There should also be a switch on the back of the accelerator rod by the firewall. This switches the converter to high stall at idle so it does not creep in gear. The wiring was different year to year meaning you will have to adapt the wiring from another year or find the switch and wiring from your year. Maybe try Ebay or put an add in the classifieds here?

    Larry70GS posted a picture near the middle of your first post page that shows the transmission switch. It is on the driver's side above the transmission oil pan.
    It has two prongs running opposite each other:
