Hurst #248-0003

is what Hurst lists in their catalog as well.
I'm thinking it's pretty cheesy-looking myself...

I'd be more apt to trust one of those ball-poppet style back-up switches

i.e NAPA Echlin # NS-6571
that could be mounted in such a way that the shift arm (ref #14 in the instruction sheet , or on the reverse shift lever right on the shifter gate would POSITIVELY activate the switch.

Id suggest using one of these brake light switches as your back-up switch:

Back in the early 1990's I used one of these on my Model A at the recommendation of a local rod builder. I have never had a problem with it.

Hope that helps!
