Default Re: Borg-Warner OD Wiring

I simply wired my solenoid direct to a fused push pull switch and indicator lamp I have in a bracket mounted on the steering column. I do not use the governor or the kickdown switch. One has to be mindful to have the solenoid off if you are backing up otherwise, damage to the OD gearbox will ensue or so I am told. In addition, If you are in OD and coming to a stop you must manually switch off OD or you will end up starting out in OD which I am told is hard on the unit. If the governor is hooked up, it does this for you.

I might add that my wiring is 12 volt negative ground. If your solenoid is 12 volts, 6 volts may not be enough to properly energize the solenoid.
