A question for anyone with an original OD installation (particularly
those with the last "O" in the commission number) in their Spitfire 4
or Mk2: on which side of the steering column is the OD switch? The Mk2
Owners Manual appears to show it on the LH side, with the turn signal
switch; TRF's Spitfire Glovebox Companion catalogue suggests that it
would be on the RH side, with the headlamp switch.

Which is correct?

Regardless, would I be correct in assuming that the switch would be
operated by raising it?

Feel free to reply ONLY to me unless you think the list would be
fascinated with all this, and thanks in advance! :-)

I can't find it right now but I seem to recall that the "guide ot
originality" book by Thommason, shows the lever on the right side of the
stalk. But that might change for LHD cars since that book only shows RHD
cars.

"on which side of the steering column is the OD switch?"

Mine is on the right hand side as is shown in the Haynes manual in Chapter 6 page 172.
I believe you pull it down to operate it as you do the lights.
