Thank you so much for the great explanation of doing this job Jim. My switch and housing came from Henry Ports many years ago. It was completely disassembled too so I have no idea how it was installed but... Now I sure do.Is there another improved snap ring we can purchase? If so from who?

Yes there is a snap ring down in the tube on the back side of the switch and it can only go in that way.

Thanks to all for your input! This thread has some good pictures of tools that might help with what looks like a miserable job.

These simple tools make the job of installing or removing the snap ring quite an easy task. For a full description and list of dimensions check out the Forum heading, Not Sure I Have A Problem.

My dad and I finally got around to removing the wiring harness from the column. The wires look to be 2 million years old. I was going to order the selection switch harness from RI wiring but thought I would ask if there is any consensus on replacing the partial harness with a single one (and fake plug) all the way to the transmission?

The trade-offs I see are:

1. A single harness eliminates any issues with the plug.
2. A single harness eliminates me trying to solder the connections on to the plug
3. A single harness means you can't pull just the selection harness out to work on the switch.
4. A single harness means more work with installing the front 1/2 of the harness.

Final question, if I go with just the selection harness, is anyone making the plug or half the plug?

Thinking about it over the weekend, I think I'm going to get the full length harness, install the new selection switch with the new harness and connect the other end to the interlock and front control without running the harness or installing the column stock. This will allow me to test everything without having to install all the wiring. Once I know it works, then I can disconnect the wires up front, and thread them down the column and pull the rest of the harness through.

Bad idea?
