Pin 86 goes the heat sensing switch in the 86 to one pin on the switch and the other pin to ground! Hope this is clear enough.

Probably screwed into the gear box at the end of the reverse shift rail. Look for a switch with a wire coming from it at the level of the shift rails or at the bottom of the gear lever at the top of the box.

My 74 MGB turn signals and break lights do not work. Fuse is good, bulbs are good. Gauges work, hazards work, parking lights work. Any suggestions?

I don't have repair info on a model that old, but the normal procedure is to follow the circuit from the brake light switch thru the turn signal switch and find out where you are loosing power.
Do the fuses have power ?

My 1980 mgb overdrive shifts fine cold when it reaches operating won't shift up or down.

Solenoid coil warms up and dissipates too much voltage with age and needs replacing. Bottom of overdrive unit. Sometimes cleaning and adjusting can help extend their life a bit.

Were is the back up light switch on a 1980 chev. 3/4 ton truck

Check where the reverse linkage meets the transmission. There should be a wire attatched to the switch near the linkage. It may be on the opposite side from the linkage. The switch is enclosed in a metal barrel with possibly 7/8" wrench/socket flats for removal.
