You are right, I have no clue what the **** I was thinking on that.
Here goes though.
I did get the Neutral safety switch put on. BTW it is "locked" in the neutral position with the metal "deal".. so you have to put the trucks trans in Neutral before you put it on. If you don't it is trashed.
So again, when you go to install a NSS (neutral safety switch) put a block behind the back wheel, and either put it in neutral before you take the old off, or take the old off while it is in park, get out from under it and turn the shaft on the transmission clockwise 2 times, you will get a "notch" that it clicks into, it is 2 clicks clockwise -> way. Put it on, and you will have your selector back
Anyone who is running aorund without a selector working right, could bvery well be this switch. Before mine was off by 1.. but when it got to the right.. it just didn't change. Now it does, It actually reads the gear I am in!
So funny when you get a basic function back.. how excited you are! LOL
I found my O2 wire had rested on the exhaust and there was bare wire showing and a torched sheathing. I had it pulled out of the way, but at some time it must have hit. The loom that goes under the oil pan was damn near toast. I am not sure if I am going to redo those wires or not. The plastic loom tubing was melted into them, and the rest that wasn't was crunchy.. the foil tape has long since lived its purposeful life.. so I am going to figure a way to get some fiberglass or silicone tubing to put the wires in. My only concern is the wires heating up from electricity flowing through them and not being able to dissipate that heat through the air.
Yes I go postal and get pissed off at this damn truck.. but it is only because I need it REALLY bad and have no backup as of right now. So when it goes down, it throws a goddamn tool box in the mix.. not good.
I will get this all ironed out, it may not be the trans at all.. but now I have all the sensors replaced.. truck has 300k on it.. it is bound to happen.. but I need to figure out a way to protect the wiring and things like that from abuse.
Also, I am now on a mission, I am going to get that goddamn gas gauge to work again.. so help me god.
After I get the cat on, and the new aft cat o2 it will round everything out. then I can turbo.
I have a seperate engine that I was goign to start rebuilding like last year.. but other shit came up.. so I need to start messing with that soon. I need the power terribly.
