Actually I knew that - just been a long day :-)

Still not convinced that ford ever produced the switch without branding it though.

Jim , maybe the switch was not Ford but Laycock , after all Ford would have approached Laycock to produce an overdrive and would have been responsible for the development and making sure it worked safely and reliably . So I think your right not a Ford part
