  When I built the engine in the '70 B that I owned out in West TX, I 
went wih a 284* cam and hi compression pistons, ported an polished the 
head, etc.  So when I stuck in the LH O'drive out of a parts car, I 
jumpered the lockout switch, just so I could play OD in any gear.  I had 
a ball with it for a few month, switching OD in at various times, while 
keeping in mind that it would only handle a certain amount of torque at 
the shift time..

   I never broke the OD, so I think that a smart driver can tailor the 
car the way he wants.  It depends on how much the driver knows.......
