Clutch safety switch?

I've been without a "Start safety" device since pulling the powerglide for a muncie many years ago, and I think it's time to put one back in.

I'm thinking a clutch switch from a 69 would be best.

Could someome scan and post or email that page out of the 69 AIM?

Are all the parts and pieces reproduced?

Re: Clutch safety switch?

The neutral safety switch on the TKO is what I plan for. Sometimes i like to start the car without pushing in the clutch. There's a thread on here somewhere but I can't find it at the moment.

Re: Clutch safety switch?

Great pictures, Jerry, thanks.

That was the good news. The bad... My 68 clutch pedal doesn't have the second hole (easy to fix) and my 68 pedal support has no holes to mount the switch it. This last could be tough.

Maybe I'll go back to using the switch in the tko for neutral.

Re: Clutch safety switch?

I have an extra 69 bracket here to make a template from if you need it. There are two holes that tangs on the switch fit in, and one at the 12:00 position on the photo above that gets a short self-tapping screw. Probably be tough to drill with it in the car, but I think you could do it with a right angle drill.

Re: Clutch safety switch?

I dunno Eric, I don't own a right angle drill small enough to get in there, it's pretty tight. My eye's are allergic to metal filings, too.

How hard is it to get that bad boy out of there?
Column will be at least loose, dash cluster will be out, I gotta replace the pedal bushings anyway... My brake rod would unfortunately be VERY unpleasant to remove, the clevis is backwards, and my rod is part of the wilwood master.

Re: Clutch safety switch?

The master cylinder would have to come off and be hanging in the engine bay. It's a lot of disassembly for sure just to put a clutch switch in.

Re: Clutch safety switch?

But, if add the neutral safety switch, you won't be able to use remote start unless you tie into the purple wire going to the solenoid and leave trans in neutral.

Re: Clutch safety switch?

I'm debating Steve. My TKO is an older one, and there's just a plug where that switch should be.

TKO guy's, can I just plug that thing in?
It goes at the very back of the shift rail, on the drivers side right?
What would it take to get a switch?
