New Reproduction Borg Warner Overdrive Solenoids
We now have available brand new exact reproductions of the original Borg Warner overdrive solenoids. These are available for both 6-volt and 12-volt applications. This is the same solenoid used by all eleven different car companies that offered the Borg Warner electric overdrive as an option from 1940 thru 1973. No core is required. These will fit standard Borg Warner overdrive applications… those with a shaft length of one inch measured from the tip of the shaft to the edge of the alignment flange. (lay your ruler on top of the shaft and measure from the ball end to the edge of the casting.) All standard overdrive-solenoids will measure one inch. Station Wagons and convertibles will measure 1.5 inches and a few odd applications 2.0 inches or longer. This solenoid fits the STANDARD one inch applications only. Please check you shaft length before ordering.

How Come A New Overdrive Solenoid Costs So Much…?
The cost to reproduce the new overdrive solenoids required an up front investment of $50,000 in professional engineering and manufacturing services.

You have to divide that cost over the number of solenoids manufactured along with the actual cost of manufacturing. We need to recover our expenses and make a small profit to keep the electricity on and pay the telephone bill. Rest assured reproducing the overdrive solenoids is NOT a money maker… it is a labor of love.

Your transmission will not work without one and with all of the originals at least fifty years old, and no new replacement parts available, somebody had to do it.
