I have been putting my pedal components together and have wasted much time looking for this switch which obviously wasn't working (rolls of electrical tape on it) It is located on the bracket that secures pedal to firewall. On all sites i have visited it is a Kickdown switch, looks identical to the one I removed but heres the kicker, My 75 is a manual and all info says they r for automatics, so why is it there? Help me out someone?

The cowl induction set-up was only used on the '73-'74-early '75 cars. On auto trans cars, the same switch was used to operate both the cowl door and the trans kickdown/passing gear. The correct term for it is kickdown switch.
