Photo is a bit tricky to see the actual "arms" of the actuator thingy. But looks like most vitesse/gt6 overdrive, also all 3 rail spitfires.
That is the extent of my knowledge, but seen a few. Not sure if there are differences along the way between actual boxes though.

(I think late gt6 has a slightly different arrangement)

If the bracket is not available, it should not be too difficult to make one?

I purchased the three synchro bracket from canleys but it fits on the opposite side of the cam.

It appears to be a non-OD type for a car with the reverse light switch on a bracket. Probably Herald or early Spitfire, as I think the Vitesse and GT6 mostly had the reverse light switch on the gearbox top cover.

Maybe Rimmers part number 158002 would be better as it mounts on the extension housing and puts the switch on the left side but it looks like it should be used with a different operator than the one you have. As Rob says yours is probably just for reverse as its too small to allow OD on third and forth....

Heralds didn't have reverse lights. Mines a 1360 and none were fitted.

That's the same as the canleys 4 synchro bracket. I tried that first the cam is to long and reaches the switch bracket

What about this operator: rimmers 158072. Although with the high cost of all these bits I'd make my own bracket......

Cheers Pete. I have the bracket from canleys. It misses on top if box as you say on the right hand side of the box. The actuator as I gave pictured is pointing the wrong way. Is it a case of removing the actuator and rotating 180degrees?

Matt,
The actuator you have is for a reversing light. It's not the one for overdrive. Even if you could rotate it (not by 180, more like 140) then it would only operate in third. You need the right part.

Please don't just ignore my advice because you don't have a reversing light. They were offered as an option (aftermarket) and would have used this actuator because drilling a hole in the gearbox cover isn't sensible for that.

Regards,
Rob

No offence meant rob. I can see that in fact that my can is indeed missing the bit for actuating the OD switch. This makes sense never occurred to me that the bit I had on my extension was not the full bit in the pic. Looks like I need to weld a piece on to actuate my switch .

Thanks to those who replied. I have now managed to weld together some metal to form an actuator for the switch
