Previously, i mentioned the bu lights didnt work, and conversatiin went to nss. Mine has the two jumped wire bypass so car will go in drive/start.
Got the switch out and the outer tract plastic is broken so the part that moves thru the arc moves around loosely, so im guessing this is reason for nonfunction. So with damage as shown in pictures, what are options.
Mine is 622. I saw a 560 i believe for that year, and by photo, they look identical. Some for sale on ebay for comparison and these things are expensive!
So, again, given the damage as displayed. What woukd best option?
You can fix that. I just repaired my 622 NSS.
I went to the dollar store bought a cheap putty knife cut it to fit the whole area bent it in to shape then applied JB weld to it and filled the void. Sanded smooth and level with the original opening. its strong and will not break.
There is a how to repair the NSS in the help section. That's where I got the tips from.
I got the part apart. And was trying to correlate the help section pictyre to my specific part.
Did yall cut the putty spreader piece to overlay the original semi circular track. On my part model it looks like if thats the, it will sit higher on the column. That wont affect its function? Or am i not seeing the photograh correctly
Nice repair idea
Thanks for sharing your innovative repair
Love when a repair comes together
If you can repair your Nss you should be getting the back up lights to be working once again
Very nice work you are doing restoring your 63 from one end to the other
I was going to get into redoing this nss. And noticed the case was cracked. Shoukd i just try tosuper glue or jb weld the case back. Or is a cracked case going to be an ongoing problem with the shifter piece going back n forth
Can you post a photo of the cracked case ?
Very hard to tell what you are asking form an explanation
If the second picture is the damaged plastic case you are referencing I would JB weld a piece of metal across the chewed up plastic part to make it a straight line again for the slider to ride smoothly on ( removing the irregular damage the slider rides on now )
The thickness of the metal used could be part of the issue for fitment
Worth a try —with nothing to loose if it does not work and you will need to get a new replacement part at that point
Use care not to get any JB weld on the moving slider during the repair and let if dry completely before installing —- of coarse
Good Luck !
