I am in the process of converting my 68 from a column shift to a floor shift. The signal switch connector on the old column (column shift steering column)has a nine pin connector. The replacement floor shift column has a eight pin connector. The plug is the same with the exception of one less wire. Will this work with the existing dash harness? What is the ninth wire for??? Maybe a lighted shift dail on the column shift?
Thanks,

Chances are it will. Which connector pin / wire color is missing?

dnult, the column shift connector has a gray wire as the ninth pin. The floor shift connector does not.Other than that it has all the same colored wires.

Look at the 68_1,2,3,4 pictures. They're the '68 wiring diagrams. Looks to be all of the illumination for the dash.

That is correct - illumination. Did the old column shifts have a light behind the gear selector? That is probably what it is for. My harness has the pin but not the column.

Thanks much guys! That is what it`s for,the lamp for the gear selector. So, I guess there will be no issue plugging it in to the 9 pin dash harness.??

HwyStarJoe,the only smoke that 68 will see in the next few months will be when the rear sheet metal is welded in... I dont think that situation will be a problem,the gray wire will be concealed in the plug with nothing going to it. I`ve seen in the resto catologs a 9 pin dash harness to 8 pin signal switch conversion harness offered... Wondering why? Maybe just a money making ploy?
Thanks again,
