....look in your local auto store at the brake light switches - you should 
find one that has a longer shank

Subject: [Healeys] reverse light switch


Anyone run across a center shift gearbox top cover fitted with a reverse
light switch, opposite the overdrive 3-4 switch?

See the attached image.  The gear lever socket has the second flat to
engage a reverse lamp switch, but there are a couple of issues.  The top
cover flange doesn't have the boss for the switch (you can see the boss
on the OD switch between the fiber washer and the flange, and on the
inside), so it's thinner.   The flange is also farther away from the
gear lever socket. Compare the two flanges to the two screws that hold
the gear shift lever in place.

So I'd have to build up the inside of the flange and machine the outside
of the flange to move the switch far enough inboard.

Just thinking out loud.
