1941 120 3 Speed with Overdrive Wiring?

Posted by 1941Packard On 2023/11/26 15:22:56
Can someone tell me what all this wiring is for going to the transmission? What is actually needed for the transmission to function? Does it have to do with overdrive? Neutral safety?

I have cars made 30 years later with zero wires going to the transmissions, so this is a bit surprising to me.

It looks like there is an inspection cover of sorts. I plan to pull that and try to see the condition of the clutch.

Also, are there good drain/fill plugs for the transmission? I assume fresh fluid would be a good idea before trying it out.

Thanks for any help!
