Dake: did you have to cut the shaft for the SYE at all?
Yes I did

You know, it may not need that. I make a habit of testing parts that reside in a grounded position in, well, a grounded position. Good catch though. I still think he'll find his problem at the connector. I had to bomb mine with dielectric grease to get the connector to seat correctly.

I had to pack dielectric grease for mine to work too. I think I mentioned something about it in the write up.

Did you get it to snap down? I don't think mine is down far enough to do so. It has a lot of DC4 on it to get it that far.

Yes it did finally snap it but it took some coaxing for sure. You have the tab pointed in the right direction, right?
Yes, Nick I recall you mentioning the same thing in your write-up. The rubber skirt on the new plug doesn't want to drop right into the switch plug housing. Put a dab of grease on the skirt as well.

There is a little piece on the switch connector that needs to be whittled away. I will go buy another one and take better pics this go round. Also I will make sure its on my buddy Dan's jeep which has the old style switch on the firewall.

FWIW, I didn't remove any material from either the switch or the plug. It was a very snug fit but appeared to have locked in. If a trim is in order maybe you can edit that into your original write up for future users.

Ok I got the NAPA 11800 seal in today. Put the new axles in no leaks so far. The switch in the TC got it snapped on to the harness. still did not work. Took it out it works the 4X4 light by hand. I may order a new switch as the button is much shorter than the old vacuum switch.

Did the old vac switch work? Do you still have it? Perhaps you can contrast and compare the lengths.

The TJ switch is the same one I have as well. You just need a little more travel in your more shaft to activate the switch.

I will try this on my next day off (after I figure out what to adjust). Thanks for all your help I'll get it sooner or later.
