Alright - First, I appreciate the ongoing assistance - thank you. Here is the deal: I have installed the switch several times. I've noticed that the switch fits over the shaft loosely. This "play" makes it difficult to adjust. The adjusted point where I get continuity depends on which direction I am rotating the switch. In other words, there is a small space in between the black plastic center of the switch and the shift shaft. So I roll it from the driver side fender to the engine, I get continuity at one spot. If I roll the switch from the engine to fender, I can get continuity in different spot. Another example: One time I installed the switch, the car would work fine if I shifted it from D3 to D4, but if I shifted it from park or neutral to D4 (from the other direction) it would physically shift into D, but as I sped up, it wouldn't shift to the next gear (rpms would increase w/out shifting beyond D1). Can I determine where D4 is on the switch by performing the continuity adjustment with the switch NOT INSTALLED IN THE CAR - like in my hand? Should I test the new switch? Should I buy another switch, try it and return the switch I have now? Or should I bite the bullet, and bring it to my local shop?
