  • Overdrive switch

    I was installing the throttle linkage on the rear of the T-cab motor and started to install the OD switch that goes into the top of the linkage. I can't figure out what is supposed to swing into the switch to activate it. I looked at the parts manual and maintinence manuals and can't find the mechanisem that moves the pin on the switch. Any one got a picture or info that I can see ?
    All of this was in a box, the truck was in pieces when I got it.

    There's supposed to be a little arm that actuates the switch as you go to full throttle. It sounds like it's missing.

    Miscreant at large.
    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
