Neutral safey/reverse switch

I changed the PG in favor of a turbo 350. The reverse lights come on when car is in neutral. I tried adjusting it to no avail. Is the neutral safety switch in a 66 with a PG the same is a 67 with a turbo 350?

Re: Nuetral safey/reverse switch

Well the PG is a 2 speed where the turbo 350 is a 3 speed so the location of the switches and the detents on the shifter could be different.

Re: Neutral safey/reverse switch

This might work for you. Shiftworks.com sells a slotted arm that bolts on the transmission in place of the factory arm. Depending on where the linkage is positioned in the slot will change the amount of travel of the shifter. They have a contact number on their website. They most likely have been asked about the PG to TH350 conversion before now.

Re: Neutral safey/reverse switch

you may be able to adjust the NS switch position a little on the column so that it lines up better with your reverse detent, but you may have trouble getting it to be close to indicating all the gears correctly. the slotted linkage arm might be the answer. shiftworks also has replacement indicator lenses for s peed or overdrive transmissions.

Re: Neutral safey/reverse switch

I figured it was a column shifter. You will need this transmission shift arm connection kit to accomplish the task and allow you to adjust the linkage.

Then you would need the correct 3 speed column lens indicator.
