Push the Overdrive cable IN to engage overdrive and pull it out to take it OUT of overdrive. That little switch that you see above the hood cable is the instrument illumination dimmer switch to increase or decrease the brightness of the instrument lites.

Lets see if the picture of my knobs is posted. Anyway I look in the repro owners manual for my '48 Lincoln Cont. and it shows no pictures or description of the heater. Does an original have info on it? George

I have an original owner's manual for a '48 and it has no pictures or description of the heating/defrost system. It doesn't have a description of the radio and it's operation either. It's a real skimpy owner's manual. The '46 and '47's are the same. The '48 manual shows the interior front compartment for a '46 to boot! The pre-war manuals were much more complete and accurate.

Well, does anyone know where I could find an owner's manual? I am also looking for a hood release and a window pump for a good deal, I just need ones that work nothing fancy.
