700r4 backup switch

Purchased this Lokar backup switch for hooking up reverse lights. Has anyone ever hooked one of these up. I think i get how it works that it depresses the small ball when car put into reverse. But not sure exactly where to mount and what to hook to the two terminals. If anyone could step me through it I would be most appreciative.

What kind of car is it going on? Floor shift auto or column auto? Most cars have the backup switch built in to the ign switch down on the steering column.

Lokar makes different ones, which one do you have?

Here is some info on them.

They have a mechanicl switch that mounts to the trans pan rail on 2 bolts. Looks like the shift lever on the trans pushes on the switch to get the reverse lights. Then you will have to wire it too.
