Asked by Oct 24, 2013 at 08:00 PM about the 1963 Ford Thunderbird

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I ordered a replacement neutral safety
switch for my '63 tbird  and it came with
2 female ends and 2 male ends. The
stock one only has one male and three
female connectors. Did I buy the wrong
one or can I splice them together to
make it work?

I've seen multipurpose switches used in the past...what is paramount is that electrically it obeys orders...if the extra lug ain't connecting to the circuitry, I would not worry about it...it's not like everyone is going to be looking there!~

if you can find "the right one" exchange this....sad part is there are NO returns on electrical components...car parts store wide~

find which ones apply with a multi-meter and use the darned thing~

there are parts houses for this car...do an internet search~

I wouldn't cut and splice wires unless the switch is a newer design and comes with instructions. Try rockauto.com they're pretty good with older stuff and have pictures so you can see what you're buying. HTH. - Jim
