Looking for idle stator switch for 64 300 CI engine

Hey guys, I know this is better suited under the "wanted" section, but I have trouble getting responses out of that forum. I am looking for the idle stator switch that mounts on the opposite end of travel than the kickdown solenoid on a 300 CI V8. This switch puts the two speed transmission into high stall whenever the car is at idle without a foot on the pedal. I need the switch, it's wiring (it connects to the kickdown switch) and it's bracket. Whenever my car was rebuilt (when I didn't own it) they left off this important item frown.gif . Here is the drawing out of the factory book. If you have one of these or know where I can get one reproduced, please let me know. Thanks! videojoe@_REMOVE_hiwaay.net

The item that you have the arrow drawn towards is a common dashpot. I got one at NAPA two years ago for my '66 right off the shelf. It's bracket can be fabricated from angle iron from a hardware store.

The hard item to find that other 300/340 owners are usually looking for is the transmission control detent switch.

The 64 dashpot is special (no pun intended) as it has a micri switch on it to control the stator in the trans. Later versions had the switch on the throttle linkage. So, you will need to find a 64 dashpot/switch for the trans to work properly. The p/n is 1367053. Hope this helps,

Mark
