So I recently install a new bracket and spring that connects to the kickdown lever. However, when I manually pull the lever back to down shift, the spring doesn't pull it back forward. Any suggestions to make it tighter?

This video from Holley may help. The spring when the throttle is closed has no tension on it. Chuck

Thanks a lot! Since I changed it from a 2 barrel to a 4 barrel, I don't have the knockdown lever extender bracket. That should solve it.
