Default Kick down assembly

Hey everyone, I have a holley 4160, and I need to put on a kick down assembly. I have been trying to find pictures online, can't find anything, does someone out there have a picture of their kick down assembly so I can get an idea on how to put it on. Also what set should I buy, and where should I get it? Thanks!

The kickdown is part of the accelerator linkage. It does not get connected directly to the carburetor. On the diagram part # 7A187 is your kickdown rod. As you can see it goes to the linkage and not the carburetor regardless of which carburetor you use.

I found some pictures online, I believe I need two springs and I need to make an adjustment, then I should be ok! Hopefully! I have a rubber bellows that is near the firewall behind the carb. The rubber is tore up, do I need that, I heard it was used for the cruise control, I would like to remove it, if it's not needed, the cruise control doesn't work anyways. Thanks!
