Sorry I can not answer that as I have no idea on your location. Having said that ask any good fabrication shop. You would need to have the engine sitting in place to work out how to make them.

Re: Diesel Inliner.

Well the Auto Elec still has the switch and has tested it a few times. In his tests he can not find a fault but not helping here is the fact it is set up with two on settings and a neutral position. A wiring diagram of the switch would help if we could find one.

I was never impressed by the Gear Vendors units when looking at them when building the F4. In a smaller application they would be OK.

Re: Suspect my neutral safety switch

It is most likely the linkage is just out of adjustment. As per the last poster if Park is not lined up then it will not start in neutral. If it starts in gear then you have issues. The early Falcons in Australia had a problem jumping into reverse once started due to bad adjustment.
