    Fitting new Solenoid to overdrive, assistance please!

    Hi team!

    Should the plunger naturally be forced out by a spring or something while the engine is off, so the overdrive is disengaged?
    Or does the pressure of the grearbox force it out when engine running?

    I understand how the solenoid pushes it in, I just want to know how it is pushed out, to make sure mine isn't broken!

    See my video:

    On an A type overdrive, the solenoid pulls it out when energised. So what your seeing is correct.

      Could it be that the arm has been aligned with the hole in the off position? Then engaging pulls the arm past the hole? Maybe someone with an A type can tell?

      It’s been a long time since I had an Atype so I may be way off there...
      Due to wear in the linkage, the hole reference on mine was useless, I had to set it up by measuring the lift on the ball valve.. see technical section... I posted that info there...

        Thanks team, I thought the Solenoid 'pushed' rather than 'pulled' so that was exactly the response I was after!

        New solenoid fitted and overdrive works a treat!

        On to the next issue... :-D
