PostSubject: leaky safety neutral switch?   Tue Oct 22, 2013 4:55 am

not sure if anyone has had this problem but the new safety switch in the 727 leaks. The trans has been rebuild only 12mnths ago.
It just drips out overnight. its not the pan for sure. its a new switch too!  is there an "o" ring for the thread or do you put thread tape on it?
I pulled it out few weeks ago and you have to plug it with your finger otherwise fluid pours out. I have a friend help and run same Teflon tape on the thread
but it still leaks. there is no "o" ring if there is suppose to be one or a gasket washer. anyone have the same problem?

thanks

Yes, I had the same problem with the switch. Tranny overhauled, old switch reused. It leaked and did not work any more. Something in the switch was broken. Ordered a new one on ebay. Now it does not leak any more.

I was thinking it was the switch but its new as well. does your have an "o" ring on the thread were it seals on the trans body?

Yes, it came with a washer and an o ring. Mine is exactly this one from Central Jersey Motor Parts:

"...but does come with the much needed washer and o-ring..."

awesome, wish the transmission guy fitted this originally then I wouldn't have been chasing this annoying leak from the start, thinking it was the pan. I think I will replace the switch as well and be done with it , thanks for the help guys

Fixed this up. This was a new switch when I fitted this but has been in the trans 12mnths
the leak has been a few drops here and there and thought it was the pan, checked and retensioned
checked all fittings, even removed the switch and replaced the "oring" but it leaked out the top of the switch housing. so got a new one and all good. sucks how new stuff doesn't last

Nice work. I am sure when I get ready to fire mine up I will find all kinds of little leaks.
