Post subject:  Neutral safety switch!!!!

Can anyone tell me how a neutral safety switch is working??
On my 53 firedome there is only one switch and compairing with my shop manual it is the N S switch. And the backup switch is located near by.
I am confused because i am quite sure i have my back up light working
and there is no back up switch where it should be.
Can this switch be working if it`s in the position where the N S switch is??
Is this understandable?

Petter, I know NOTHING about 1953 models, so I probably won't be of much help. On the 1957 models, the neutral safety switch is on the transmission, and all it does is function as a ground wire when the transmission is in neutral. It is a brown wire, and if you suspect you have a bad neutral safety switch, you can confirm it by simply grounding out that wire. If you do that, though, you'll have a very dangerous situation, because if you crank the engine with the wire grounded and the transmission in anything other than neutral, the starter will engage and the car will lurch forward or backward. In other words, with the NS switch properly working, that circuit is only grounded when the transmission is in neutral, and having that circuit grounded is the only way the engine will crank.

On a 1957, the backup light switch is in the pushbutton unit.

Hei Petter you might wanna come to Moss one afternoon and check out the wiring on my car?
I will try to lift it to grease it up this week, if you want I can try to take some photos to see how the wiring goes under my car.
Stå på!

Hi Raymond.
Thank you for the offer but i haven`t the time to do that,
but if you could check if you have two switches on your transmission it would be great.
I have been able tosort out how the wiring goes but now i have to find out about the turn light switch.
Thank you for the "stå på", don`t give in. :)

Hi again.
Thank you Ed.
I understand that those two switches can not change place and then it seems that i have SN switch and not the BU switch. I think!!!!?
Photos is great Paul but i can`t remember that i have received any mail from you lately but i will check again.
Thank you for the input.

Just pulled out my cameraphone and took the photo and checked the shopmanual after I posted it.
I am sorry it is ofcourse the governor and solenoid. I am red of shame and embarrassed....
take care

Petter, you have not been receiving the email I want you to receive. My email does not allow me to send any. The Internet works - so here I am. I have your defroster blower and motor ready to go.
I will take pics but I need to know I can send them first. I have a new PC but the NEW Windows 7 does not seem to have email. i paid extra to have everything setup and there is no email.
I will get it straightened out but for now... hang in there.
