Just type in your year, make, model at Autozone or Rockauto.com and ensure it's for a C-4. Good luck finding a OEM part. Yes they are out there but unless it's something super uncommon why bother...The only real important Ford stuff is for the starter solenoid, or some ignition stuff because the aftermarket ones are crap.

Hi D.R.Ball,  Thank you for the advice,  I checked Rockauto and found 2 choices, so now i need to figure out which version is correct.  From the pictures shown on rock auto, the difference looks like how far the mounting bosses make the switch hang off the side of the trans. The Rockauto part #'s are: NS214 $69.79 & SW1615 $84.79.

Buy the Motorcraft part SW1615 that is the right part. It's the same listing for both the 1.6 and the 2.0....I'm not surprised that Rockauto has some Motorcraft parts...In this case the stock part looks like the right part, I do not know the real difference etc for price . And they have it...

Hi D.R. Ball


I will get SW1615.  I am doing a C-3 to C-4 swap on my 74 runabout.  Thank you for the help!  ;)
