trying to figure out the wiring for a neutral safety switch on the clutch pedal.

i think this is the correct way to wire it.

-"start" position on ignition switch sends power to purple starter wire and pin 85

-once clutch pedal is depressed, closing switch to ground. energizing coil in relay

Just read from #1 post to the end óó and all I can say is WOW! And I donít mean wow about the car..... but to see what youíve done and had to endure - rotting old pile of car (all of em are like that by the way) - Baby boy! (Need updated pics!!) and a Flood.... and your car still keep progressing. Iím seriously impressed young man (at 65 I can say that).

Iíd try to help with the safety switch but my cancer med has kicked in - so brains donít work very well after that.....

I have some things to say about the rear end centering - but will hold this thought until I can really write what I want to tell you. Itís not bad ó I donít post bad ó I want to help and try to help save you some headache at the same time - but that is going to need my full attention.

Just wow ó still shaking my head at you! What perseverance you have!

Thank you sir! yes, it's been a wild ride haha. It hasn't been easy but i have learned a lot from it!

As far as the rear end centering- I've been in contact with ridetech and Josh has gotten me lined out with it. I installed the tabs with the pinion at a -3 angle and it needed to be a +3 angle(my fault for not reading the instructions). I haven't fully welded the tabs on yet, just a strong tac weld. It's looking much better

YES.....assuming the "clutch switch" closes the circuit when the pedal is on the floor.....

I have similar drivetrain set up as yours, but my LS2 is a rebuilt, and I used the following:
-Engine oil: Penzoil 5-30W (non synthetic). Used Walmart cheap oil in the first 50 miles.
-Coolant: Prestone green premix
-TR6060 - Walmart cheap dexron 3 first, as the trans is used. Then changed out to Redline D4 after 200 miles.

Got the battery hooked up and function tested my wiring. All seems good so far. Fluids and gas this weekend/week for the first fire up

Clutch pedal neutral safety switch worked perfectly

Thanks! Why green instead of dexcool?
