I have a 5sp d/r from an '89 mated to an EJ22 into a '78 Leone, and I'm looking for a pinout for the switches on the transmission so that I can hook up neutral, 4x4, and reverse light switches without a ton of trial and a bunch of error.  Anybody able to help me out?

Here's the connectors:

Green and Green/white are reverse lights.

Black connector is for the neutral switch. I have the complete pin-out for the White connector out in the garage. Will post back later with info.

Didn't find the paper I was looking for, just did a quick look-see out there.

 

Do know,

as Gloyale posted, Green/White (fused power) and Green (to back up lights),

 

Blue/Red is from the 4WD indicator display, and one of the Blacks are ground.

 

I will look harder for that paper tomorrow. Not feeling the best today.

Thanks again.  I'm just getting to in now, so I'll see what I can figure out and go from there.  Hope you feel better and let me know what you find when you can.

This is what I've gotten to so far:  

the GW and G are reverse light as stated above. 

I pulled another power source, and when it is connected via solid line in the diagram (to the smaller of the two greens), the 4x4 light goes on only in low.

When power goes via dotted line, 4x4 light is always on.  

So I'm assuming the 89 dash had separate lights for hi/lo, how can I get the single 4x4 light to light up when either hi or lo gear is selected?

This might be obvious, but the electricks are tough. 

Both get power is my next guess...

Found my notes of EA82 DR 5 speeder into my Brumby - so may help

 

reverse switch is on LHS of box

4WD dash light switch is at the rear at the top

low 4WD dash light switch is on rhs of box

 

MY 4WD dash light switch is at base of the 4 selector lever itelf so may be same for 78 ? Extend this wire to new loom

Reverse wires , green/white trace and green /white trace

4WD low dash lite blue/red trace

earth is black wire

Thanks, but I'm a little confused by what you mean. "4wd dash light switch is at the rear at the top"?  What's that mean?

My tranny is an '89 5sp DR.

 

As per above, I've got reverse working fine, and it turns on when in 4lo, just want it to turn on in 4hi now too.
