    Motor's Manuals that cover this time frame have this info (pictured) and much more.  Copies on eBay sell for cheap and I highly recommend you get a copy to supplement the Hudson repair manuals.

    Good luck.

    I found an outfit that sells everything for an overdrive unit. It was on my old laptop that finally workout. They also sell the diagram for the overdrive unit wiring. They sell the units for 6 volt and 12 volt. I have a 48 super six club coupe

    Try this outfit for overdrive parts for your Hudson "Fifth Avenue Antique Auto Parts". I'm getting everything from them to rebuild my transmission and over drive unit

    If time is on your side, I would suggest getting a new one to install. Is your car a 6volt or 12 volt?

    This link will show you how to repair your existing relay to operate on 6 or 12 volts.  The replacement relay selection matches your electrical system.  https://www.studebakerparts.com/studebakerparts/store/s/agora.cgi?page=relay.html  OR just wire in the relay with out the cover.  I have a 12  volt relay hidden and kept the inoperative relay on the firewall with Essex plug and covered wires for originality appearance.  Good luck.
