    Some sensible advice here. While I know that the clutch doesn't really need to be used when engaging or disengaging the overdrive and accelerating slightly when disengaging definitely works, I confess to using the clutch occasionally when the car is moving at very high speed. Whether that makes things any better in terms of protecting the overdrive/gearbox I really have no idea, but it makes me feel better! The only other suggestion I can offer in terms of experience with my '66 car would be to check the adjustment of the solenoid operating valve as described in both the Mark 2 Service Manual and in the Heynes Manual for the Mark 2 as well.

    Thanks for that- I dip the clutch ever so slightly when disengaging which does work but will try accelerating or go down the solenoid route.
