Wiring on overdrive


Recommended Posts

Use the reverse light supply. From that to od inhibitor switch, then od switch (gear knob of column) and then to the solenoid.

There shoudl be a fuse in teh reverse light circuit somewhere.


Or, take a feed off the ignition circuit and to the inhibitor switch.


J type does not require a relay.

If you're having a gearlever-mounted switch, then wire from the inhibitor switch to the solenoid, and *then* to the gearlever switch and finally to chassis. It's not how Triumph did it, but a short in the gear lever won't release smoke from the wiring :)  Just means you'll be in O/D in 3rd & 4th until you fix the problem. (Of course, a comprehensive fuse box can offer the same protection!)
