    Overdrive Relay Orientation

    I've added an OD to my car as it is being rebuilt. As a pre-TR60000 TR3A, I know the proper original relay would be the one with screw terminals, and have seen interesting discussions about which way to mount those.

    Unfortunately, not having one with the screw terminals, I'm using the later Lucas 6RA spade connector type.

    Should the spades face up or down when mounted on the battery box? Thought I saw something in the past about a factory notice concerning water collecting on the terminals....Thanks.

    The ones I have seen have the terminals facing up. Have a good day!
