neutral safety switch
#1
I recently bought a new neutral safety switch for my 73 Mustang and the one I bought the wrong one. The car originally had a 302 but I changed the engine out to a 351W and kept it a c4 trans. The switch I bought is a Motorcraft SW 1615 , it is suppose to be for a C4 trans. car but it has only one pigtail. My car has two pig tails coming off the neutral saftey switch. The only other one I could find that looks right and has the correct number of pigtails is a SW-1148. It it is for a C6 transmission and my car is a C4 car. I am sending the SW 1615 back, so should I just order up other one and try it?

This may be it. http://www.aapd.net/detail.aspx?ID=6139
Caution! I believe the PN is D0ZZ-7A247-A. Some vendors show this part number with one plug and others show it with two plugs. Call and verify before you buy, they are not cheap. Is it missing/destroyed? If not you may be able to clean/repair it. Chuck

They both provide the same function, just the one has both pairs of wires and plugs molded together. The connectors that plug into them should work with either style, just make sure the wire color codes are matched up.
I agree with trying to repair your old one. The grease in them usually gets hard and dirty, and won't let the contacts make connection. Cleaning and a good quality grease should make it work again. Just keep track of the parts inside, the hard grease may camouflage them.
