So this is out of my 1964 F-100 what is it?

mike_breaker_5 07-27-2013 12:38 PM

temp sensor?

mike_breaker_5 07-27-2013 12:57 PM

looks similar but not identical.

maybe it's an oil pressure switch.

Looks like a brake light switch.

mike_breaker_5 07-27-2013 02:05 PM

i thought that too... this is a pic of the brake light switch for that truck.

what motor is in this truck? rockauto has like 5 diff motor options for a '64 f100

mike_breaker_5 07-27-2013 02:06 PM

where in the truck was it mounted?

jjjk 07-27-2013 02:33 PM

I still think it is a brake light switch. The wire connectors are not stock and that leads me to believe that it is a substitute switch for the original factory switch. I'm not sure enough to place a bet on it though.

262 I6 (not the original motor)

It's not mounted, just dangling there

mike_breaker_5 07-27-2013 03:24 PM

oh... so it's dangling on the interior? i thought you were just holding it there to show it. lol i would tend to agree with jjjk then. either like a door light switch, brake light switch, or a clutch safety switch.

does the white center plunger push in (spring loaded) ?

if so, some kind of switch, instead of a sensor.

Can't be a clutch safety switches, they had no such sissy switches on those old trucks. Its obviously a plunger style switch, so I would say it has to be a brake light switch. Would mount under the dash, above the brake pedal. If all works correctly, your brake lights should be on when the plunger isn't pushed in.

i know they didn't put them in older vehicles... but... since it looks like an addon, i had thought that for some reason or another it may have been added. just a thought. i would lean towards the brake light switch as well knowing the positioning of where it was hanging.

On those old vehicles, everything looks like an add on,lol. Without being thereto see, it could be something else, heck even some redneck starter switch or horn button.

Rican142 07-27-2013 07:03 PM

No, that thing doesn't compress, and if it does it's jammed

I think you might want to post this question on
