I am just about done restoring a 1974 CJ5 with a T-18A Transmission. My reverse lights were not engaging. I pulled the switch from the top of the tranmission but it is fused to the mechanical push switch under the switch. I can find the switch easily but I cannot find the piece it screws into at all.

I would try Novak. They have a lot more parts available over the phone than they show online.

I have a 79 with a Borg Warner T18 4 speed transmission installed by a previous owner. Just finishing up a complete rewire with Painless Performance wiring harness and, for the life of me, I canít find the reverse switch / electrical contacts on the tranny to connect the reverse light wires to or the 4wd contacts on the transfer case to connect the 4wd indicator wires to ... I am a complete Newbie so any help or photos would be appreciated!!

I am unable to post pictures right now, but if you follow this link, it should answer your question.
The back up switch on the T18 is the red cap on the top cover at the rear of this image.

I don't recall any 4wd indicator switch on any of my D20's, but that does not mean there is not one on yours. I just don't ever recall seeing one.

And for future reference, you posted to a thread that has been inactive for nearly 2 years. You will get better results to your questions if you start a new thread in the appropriate section.
And, welcome to the forum!
