Hi all..Can I appeal for some help please. It's basic wiring for the O/D solenoid. I have a new relay, wiring loom and I've amazed myself by fitting a new solenoid. With the help of Pete Lewis with the 2 page guide. I have power from ignition and battery to the relay. I dare not try and wire it myself. It's on axle stands and the engine will start and I have a pit which I don't think will be needed. I've been let down twice. It's very frustrating. I'm at Shepshed in Leicestershire. ......Neil
Hi all, I need to replace the solenoid for my D Type overdrive - it is only intermittently switching from pull current to holding current, so around 50% of the time it's quietly frying itself. Having removed the tunnel and rubber boot from the back of the solenoid, the plastic switch section has parted company from the metal tube and rotates freely, which is probably why the switch is only working part time - I'm actually surprised it's working at all. Anyway, all the usual suppliers (Canleys, Paddocks, Rimmers) stock an unbranded solenoid looking much like the one I have that's come apart for around £35. Overdrive Repairs have a similar looking unit listed for £40 and Moss want £57 for the same item. eBay has a few unbranded and modern Lucas in the £30 ball park, but also a new old stock Lucas solenoid that looks more like the one I had on a previous overdrive unit. So, do I go for for brand new made in wherever, or a NOS Lucas? Many thanks, Gully
