Ok, I've remove both screws, and the linkage bolt on my C4. The NSS comes off with no problem. What part of the nylon/plastic do I replace, or am I missing a part. I couldn't get the bushing(?) out of the NSS, or off the post it mounts to. Which part is the actual seal. I can order it from NAPA, but I need the orig to compare it to because the guys around here can't tell a brake caliper from a NSS I don't think.(ok, maybe it's not that bad but I've been sold the wrong part before). TIA

Hello Dan -

I was looking at my switch today, and there is only the one notched nylon bushing that mounts the switch to the trans. As far as being replacable as a separate piece, I didn't know that, but anything's possible. Why are you looking to replace it anyway?

The NSS is replaced as one unit, there's nothing to take apart and really nothing serviceable in them.

Are you saying that you pulled it off because it is leaking tranny fluid at the shift arm? If so, the NSS doesn't have anything to do with this ... it just happens to mount in the same place. The seal is on the inside of the tranny and you'll need to drop the valve body out if it needs replacing.

This would be an unusual place for a leak, IMHO. Are you sure that's where it's leaking from?

I have a leak from somewhere in that area. I am replacing things in cheapest and easiest to reach order first. I have been told about a switch shaft seal, but am not familiar with where it is exactly. None of the photos/diagrams I have give a good description. I ordered the Haynes book for ford trannys, but that will be a week.
Thanks,
Dan

The best I can tell yes. The fluid runs down from around the NSS when I attempt to top it off. I don't loose all of the fluid, just some. Any other suggestions are greatly welcomed. How hard is it to drop the valve body etc?
Thanks, Dan

Confession time ... I've never dropped the valve body on one. I'm debating whether to tackle it myself, though, on my new AOD that'll be going into my '66.

From what I've read and heard, though, it's not very difficult.

I just replaced the NSS on my 69 because the back-up lights didn't work. While I was there I did a good inspection of the area and I do not believe there is anyway for the switch to cause the leak.
