No reverse lights
#1
Hello.  I have a 1971 351 with a 4-speed Hurst shifter (aftermarket), and the previous owner did not put a switch on it for the reverse lights.  I have found two options online: 
1.

2.

Does anyone know which one is right for a 4-speed Hurst shifter?  The 1st one's bracket looks to small.  And the 2nd picture I cannot find a bracket for.  If anyone knows a website that sells them let me know.

Thank you!

Did the previous owner install the mounting bracket that comes with the Hurst shifter?  They usually come with a bracket to mount the stock type switch which is the second one (black plastic switch) you have pictured.  There is also a metal retainer that is needed for it and the wiring harness.  Places like National Parts Depot and CJ Pony parts should have the OEM type switch, retainer, and wiring harness.  But you need the bracket that Hurst provides with the shifter.

The other option, and maybe easier, is an aftermarket switch and bracket assembly that Hurst sells, p/n 2480003.
