    cwinston,

    Have you tried adjusting the threads on the kickdown switch that's mounted on the accelerator bellcrank, to give a more positive contact when you want to drop out of OD?

    When my kickdown wasn't working I would just shift to second gear! Champ [8D]

    My 51 Champion comes out of OD when I push the pedal all the way down only once in a while, but I can get it to come out every time if I let of the gas for a moment then mash it to the floor.

    As a temporary measure until you solve the problem you can get it to shift down by turning the ignition off and back on quickly.

    The overdrive on my Champion 4 door, 6 cylinder with overdrive doesn't want to shift down out of overdrive when I push down on the accelerator all the way. What do I need to check or fiz? Roger
