I went through the same thing, many years ago. At the time, the consensus
seemed to be that the factory configuration was "OD engaged" with the switch
lever down. This is the same way British light switches work. But
TS39781LO came to me with what appeared to be the original switch,
configured the other way (OD engaged with toggle up).
Kind of makes me wonder if some dealers were changing the switch around; or
if perhaps the factory did so when delivering to the US.
As I recall, I found that the original switch could be assembled either way.
There was an extra contact, so the same result could be accomplished by
changing the wires, but it turned out that the body of the switch could be
mounted to the stalk (extending from the dash) in either orientation. So it
wasn't necessary to swap the wires.
