78 firebird with a chevy 350 and T-350 neutral start only
 
I have a 78 firebird with a chevy 350 and a TH350. The car only starts in neutral. Once it's started the car does work like normal. The back up lights don't work either. I replaced the safety neutral switch on the column and plugged in the wires. It is a console shift that I have in there and it appears to be the original, not a aftermarket. Can anyone tell me any ideas or how to fix this problem. The only wire I have running to the console is the one gray wire for the lamp.

It is either adjusted wrong or wired wrong. My guess is adjustment as it uses the same wires for park and neutral.

neutral start only
 
How would I adjust it? The linkage on the tranny? I have the assembly manual for the car, but it does not tell me how to adjust that...

Usually the switch mounting or the bracket has slotted mounting points.
