    TR3A overdrive question

    I have a '59 TR3A with overdrive. The overdrive operates fine. In attached picture you see two electrical connections on the top of the transmission shell. One is the switch which activates the electric overdrive. I have no idea what the other is. A relay switch? Only one of the leads is attached to an electrical line. My TR show manual does not show more than one switch for an overdrive. Any ideas?

    The 2nd switch was added when they allowed OD in 2nd gear. With it disconnected, you shouldn't be getting OD in 2nd.

    See page E26 in the workshop manual for more info.
