    I have a newly acquired ’54 Mercury. Dual exhaust has been added by changing the manifold, which resulted in less room for the neutral safety switch to go all the way over to allow the car to start in park. Starting in neutral is ok however, sometimes after starting it jumps in gear. Does anyone have a fix to make the safety switch work properly, maybe using a different switch or bracket for the switch, etc.?


    The neutral safety switch in the early Ford/Mercury automatics are truly “neutral” safety switches and are not designed to let the car start in park.



    Virgil, thanks again for your help. Guess I did not remember correctly. I was thinking when I had this same year and model car in the 50’s it would start in park or neutral.
