Hello. 85 720 kc 5 spd caliwacker. 249.978 miles.
On the passengerside of 5 spd trans is 2 separate sensors..they have 2 wires going to them. What are names and functions? They look identical..and look the same as the clutch "neutral switch" I ordered yesterday...that goes at top of clutchlever....

My slave cylinder quit yesterday and I notice 2 more switches/sensors? on the trans.. All 3 look identical..1 at clutch petal and 2 on the trans. Parts stores only haz the neutral switch. Are there 3 neutral switches? Yup time for a FSM..searching for hours no luck.
Appreciate some help.

The switch on the right side of the rear case but forward of the shifter is the neutral switch. If there is one below it near the bottom that's the top gear switch. The one in the front case to the rear of the shift lever is the reverse light switch.
