I am installing a 67-72 Tilt Automatic Steering Column in my 61 Apache.

I have a Neutral Safety Switch on the steering column. However, I do not have a clue what wires get connected to this Neutral Safety Switch.

Can anyone provide me with clear direction on what wire(s) need to be connected to this switch?

Thanks

Heres what I have - looking down the column from the steering wheel, I have ( 4 ) connection prongs. Two are side by side / two are vertical.
On the side by side, left hand is power feed for backup lights / right hand goes to backup lights.
On the vertical, upper goes to solenoid / lower goes to ignition switch. Hope this works - I haven't got my truck back on the road yet to test in real life !!!

Britcon is right. The original wires are purple about 12 gauge. Some of the older models had the switch down on the trans. with a little rod hooked to the linkage.


They say money can't buy happiness. It can buy old Chevy trucks though. Same thing.

Here's one for you. I installed a new neutral safety switch on my column, put the wires back like they were, hit the ignition switch and up came a big ball of smoke. It fried a wire going to the starter. Now I have to use a push button switch to start it. Just one of the joys of driving an old truck!
