Frequently Asked Questions
Shifter Conversion Kits
the transmission and the shifter have detents, and they serve different
purposes. The rooster comb detent in the transmission “locks”
the Trans into a gear and the shifter detent protects the transmission
from inadvertently being put into the wrong gear and causing damage
to the transmission. Bumping the shifter into Neutral is not generally
seen as harmful. The shifter detent makes it impossible to bump
the transmission into Reverse or a lower gear with out the driver
taking an action to do so.
Normal operating temperatures of 180F – 190F will put the pointer at about 1/3 scale.
Q: My Neutral Safety/Back-up Switch (NSS) does not work, or I can not get it adjusted.

1968-72 Chevy Horseshoe Shifters: The stock switch should work for 3-speed and 4-speed conversions. The switches are adjustable by loosening the screws and rotating the switch. The original switches are Delco-Remy and have 434 stamped into the metal back. You can buy new STANDARD (www.standardbrand.com) #NS7 switches on Amazon and Ebay. These were used in many cars.
A: The button top style sender is different from
the idiot light sender, but the same as the GM gauges sender used.
A simple connection can be made using a standard female spade type
crimp on connector. Take a small flat blade screw driver and use
it to open up the connector as if it was to be used on a fat male
spade. Then slide it onto the sending unit
