I'm trying to get my overdrive working.
It is marked "R6-1S" on the side of the case. My transmission says T86.
it has a solenoid marked Chrysler but there is no governor. - how can that be?
It has a dash mounted pull/push cable.
I pulled the tranny tunnel cover and the only item on the top of the OD looks like a fill plug.
I'm looking for technical manual, etc.
Here are the pages from MoToR's manual.
These last two are of the wiring in the Studebaker 1939 Manual. They are essentially the same; the President version is slightly clearer.
OK, to operate it. Knob in = "overdrive mode". The overdrive will work. At about 20 mph, lift off the go pedal and it should change into overdrive, a lesser speed into 2nd o.d. Freewheeling should work until locked out by the overd
