Hey all i'm working on my reverse switch now and when I disconnected the connector that joins the switch to the wires running to the lights I found that it was saturated with oil. It was'nt gunky oil either. What kind of oil do you think this is? Manual trans oil? I looked around and I think the oil is coming from where the switch connects to the trans. Maybe it leaked out through the threads? Do you think if I dry out the switch it might work? Maybe I don't need a new switch. Any ideas?
Probably not. It was way too tight for a crow's foot.A trip down to the local auto parts store or Sears would be a good place to find one. They are not really that expensive. Even a flare nut crows foot might have worked.
Awesome video. I just tried to get this switch off my truck the other day using a flare wrench. No bueno. I had no room to turn the wrench once it got a solid hold. So I'm thinking the crowfoot like in this video may be the way to go.did replace my, see the video, is a 5 speed
