Where is the neutral safety switch located on a 1969 Mustang?

Hi. I've got a 1969 Ford Mustang Mach One with a 377 Windsor and an AOD transmission. I am having starting issues with this car, sometimes it will and other times it won't. I have to jump the starter relay solenoid to get it to start. I tried doing some searches and to no avail. I am confused as to the location of the safety switch. Different people have said that it is located at the transmission and others have it's beneath the floor shifter. Where is it located? What type of neutral safety switch should I buy? C-4 or ?

5.8lcobra, Purple Horse has an automatic transmission. AOD means Automatic with OverDrive.

All I can tell you is on C4's, its mounted on the transmission on the shift shaft. This shaft comes out of the side of the transmission and connects via a linkage rod to your shifter. Sorry, I can't help with the type switch or location of it, but it is probably in the same location as on the C4.

I contend, that for a nation to try to tax itself, into prosperity, is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.

on mine (i have a c4 though) it was located on the driver side of the tranny case. I have since installed a B&M floor shifter and relocated it to a micro switch in the shifter housing. not sure about location on AOD.
