    Is anyone using the shift light on the MSD Powergrid to shift a Lencodrive 2 speed? If so, what type of latching relay are you using? How do you dump the air? Reeper

    Call Brad Schmidt 336-463-4073, he works for Todd Tutterow. They make a pretty good auto shift system. I know that doesn't directly answer your question.

    I don't know that anyone is using the shift light to auto shift in a Lenco application. Obviously it would require a latched relay and a reset.

    I see no reason why the shift light feature wouldn't work. I would suggest to find the right 12V air valve you want to use that releases the air on de-energizing and you can make your own simple latching relay out of a single relay. You don;t have to buy someone else's latching relay. I made several of them and they all work fine. When the shift light turns off, the relay stays on until you cut power to it, with a simple "momentary off" toggle or push button switch (or when you turn off the ignition).

    assuming you know msd makes a stand alone box for that. I know you want to do it with the grid. I like the seperate systems. it saves you from accidently changing the shifting if you go in and change something in the grid. Got all our stuff from Snyders.
