Need help with TH350 back-up light switch

Okay, I'll admit to complete ignorance here,so please be kind and gentle.

I'm modifying my dash and currently the back-up lights are directed by a toggle switch on the dash,rather than the usual switch engaged on the transmission when shifting. I want to more the switch the the transmission location and eliminate the toggle. I have NO idea how to do this.

I've seen the switches from Lokar and Ron Francis, but I really don't see how to mount them,or engage them or anything else. Really stupid,huh? So could someone kindly post or send me a diagram,.photograph,drawing,extended explanation or an online reference on how to do this? The spring Carlisle PA meet is coming up and I'm hoping to figure out what parts I need before the show. Thanks. Jeff

The TH350 did not have a place for the backup lights, they were controlled by a switch on the column under the dash, usually intagrated with the ign. switch.

I believe a few good answers are on your thread on the HAMB board.

"I believe a few good answers are on your thread on the HAMB board."

True-but it's always nice to get a second opinion and who knows who might post the answer I need, so I like to cross-post. You can also count on the HAMB to post a few jousts and critical comments-I know because I join in myself. I appreciate everyone's help and hope I can return the favor sometime.

1) Do you have a colunm shift? or floor shift?

This will dictate where your back up light switch will be mounted.

My car had a colunm shift and now has a Hurst floor shifter with the switch added to the floor shifter.

I've got a column sift-the column is out of a Chrysler, probably late 70's with a tilting and telescoping wheel.Called the Tilt-n-scope, it's actually GM technology leased by Chrysler with just enough twists added to make it exciting.

The HAMB is a parallel site to hotrodders. Quite a bit more irreverent,devoted to traditional hotrodding-you'll need a tough skin to participate but a good bunch of folks deep down. Here it is:

www.jalopyjournal.com - named the HAMB because Ryan the moderator apparently said he wouldn't run no Hokey *** Message Board


See, on the HAMB,I could say "***".

Within the column there is a NSS (Neutral Safety Switch), this switch controls your reverse lights when you shift into R.

Ron Francis also carries a variety of options.

You might need to just replace the switch in the column or the wiring has not been hooked up. Since this is not the original column.
