  • Transmission / Overdrive: Overdrive troubleshooting

    So need some help here...48 champion..new solenoid and new relay switch and OD still doesn't work. No idea what to do next. Any thoughts on which direction to look next?

    I have always used the step-by-step overdrive troubleshooting 'flowchart' in the Stude Shop Manual with excellent results. Have you looked at it?

      With the O.D. Handle pushed IN, does it Freewheel as it should, and just fail to shift above 32 MPH?

      If it does not Freewheel, that means the "Mechanical" part of the System does not function at all, IF the Lever on the Overdrive Unit IS pushed ALL the Way back to the stop by the Cable.

      If all of the above is normal, you may have missed a bad Kickdown Switch.

            And then there's this; the Studebaker Corporation's Overdrive Manual.
