Re: Neutral safety switch on a manual 68?
68 Automatics had a NSS. It was located in the console and the switch was attached to the shifter. The circuit was provided by two large purple wires. I'm not sure if the manual setups short circuited the switch, or somehow bypassed it in the wiring. I say this in case the car was converted from auto to manual.
If the NSS or clutch switch (which may not apply in ether case) does not work, no current will flow the solenoid and the engine will not crank - the starter will not clunk.
