  • Overdrive indicator light

    I am looking for Overdrive indicator light (LED preferred) and mounting ideas/locations. Can anyone send a picture and / or tell me what they bought and installed?
    Thank you -

    I recall two implementations that I'd would look to whenever we convert our car to OD.

    One is a custom gear knob with illuminated switch which I believe one memeber Jeremy - oppositelocksmith does.

    The other is a reuse and relabeling of the seatbelt light, which the later cars had. There was a place that sells different labeled bulb holders in that style.

    A deeper search might bring them up.

      Here’s mine in the seatbelt warning light position. I used a super bright LED and printed the wording on clear mailing label stock. I have a logic OD controller which provides for the OD light and also dims it when the headlights are on. I have the word doc somewhere for the label stock too. I just colored the text red with a Sharpie on the label stock after printing it out.

      I recall that I was able to carefully remove the rectangular bezel to apply the label and then snap the bezel back on. The LED and resistor also fit easily in the seatbelt warning light tube too.

          To add to what TR6Harris said. The company that sells the bulb holders with various lettering is
          www.k4switches.com.

          I haven't seen the bulb holders but my understanding is they are slightly larger than original.

          Attached are a few pages from an old catalog.

                Thank you everyone. Unless i go with the gear shift knob ight, which is cool, I will probably repurpose one of the existing lamps. I wanted to figure this out as I am putting in the new wiring harness in my '74 with A-type overdrive. I am in year 5 of my complete tear-down and restoration. I will be posting some more wiring questions in a new thread shortly!
