Question What would be the best way to wire-up reverse lights?

My truck is a '68 C/10, that was originally a four speed. It was converted to an auto transmission before I got it. Recently I upgraded the floor shift to a Lokar, and wired and connected the neutral safety switch - (It didn't have one when I got it). I know Lokar didn't suggest using the neutral safety switch, but I wasn't sure how the reverse lights were originally connected to the SM-465. Now of course I have a TH350. Thank you, Ned

Interested. My SM465 equipped truck doesn’t have working backup lights.

bottom of page 14 Use the switch on top of the shifter for Neutral safety and this switch mounted off the pan for reverse lights.

I saw that and need to call them to ask if it will work. I’ve already got a bracket
And apparatus for the cable shifter and not sure if both will mount and work together. This is a floor shift cable shifter I have. Thanks will check.

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.
