    Or solder leads to the posts and use bullet connecters. Good solder technique required though ... you could melt the switch otherwise.

    Guys, you can use Borg Warner # S395
    Echlin (NAPA) ECH NS6581 that has two terminals with shafts that you can put #8 nuts on, and put ring connectors on your wires.

    Doubtful that any T-98s had it. There may be a cast-in boss in the right place though.

    I suspect that you could use a shift top from a '70s T-18 which would have a backup light switch. This would have to be the over-and-up reverse T-18, and I would guess that you'd have to use the T-98 shift forks.

    Much easier just to put a switch on the dash. I'd add a reminder that would beep or blink while the light was on...

    Which? The switch or a t-18 shifter top? A shifter top should be available used from r&p, partsmike, hermtheoverdriveguy,etc

    You may have enough meat there to add a switch without requiring a boss. I added one to my T90 without any trouble-




    More pics on how to do it-
