Ok, I did a search on the topic first and came up with nothing to answer my specific question.

I am converting a 72 column shift to a console shift. I have the console, shifter and nuetral safety switch. I am not going to swap out columns just yet.

Anyhow, I want to re-wire the console nuetral/reverse lights safety switch on the console so that everything works correctly. I know that I can go buy the console harness and make life very simple, but I would rather just make a harness. (I already made one for the shift indicator back lighting and the courtesy light at the rear of the console.)

Anyone else done this same thing? Any pointers or wiring diagram/description would be appreciated.

I just did this same job on my '72. The nuetral/reverse light switch is on the column with mine and is operated by the shifter lock rod which turns the lower part of the column when you move the shifter. All I had to do was to swap the column and plug in the existing wiring. The floor shift column I have was from a '72 as well so it has to be correct.

The only wiring for the console would be for the lights.

Louie, My wife gave me that name because I take the family vacation every year in Moab, Utah for the Easter Jeep Safari........ Is there some sort of a connection to DUNE? I have never seen the movie.
