Can you turn on and off the overdrive on a 98 ram 1500

I have never known an overdrive that cannot be switched on or off at will or engaged or disengaged.

There are two definitions of overdrive and in the philosophy of some people the fifth gear is an overdrive.
The conventional manual gearbox, because the first motion shaft is locked to the third motion shaft in the top gear ratio, any supplemental ratio that has a ratio higher than 1:1 is considered an overdrive ratio.

The more traditional definition of an overdrive is a supplementary gearbox that can be incorporated into a normal manual gearbox to provide a single overdrive ratio for the purpose of quieter and more economical cruising.
The early overdrive was cable operated by a large chrome-plated dashboard-mounted handle. Later overdrives were hydraulic units that could be switched in or out by electricity, often by the means of a steering column-mounted switch or by a tiny switch incorporated into the gearknob.

A typical installation included an inhibitor switch mounted on the gearbox which prevented overdrive operation in the lower ratios when the benefits would be dubious.
Sometimes a lower than standard final drive ratio would be used and the overdrive ratios which typically could be selected whenever third or fourth gear was selected could be used together to produce something like a six speed close ratio gearbox which was hitherto unheard of when some of the rest of the world was still using "three on the tree" type three-speed gearboxes.

Most manufacturers had dispensed with overdrives by the end of the 1970's due to the weight and added expense, in favour of the now common five-speed gearbox, though Nissan incorporated an overdrive ratio into their automatic transmissions to compensate for torque converter slip when fuel costs began to rise disproportionately.

If you have an overdrive unit fitted to your car that doesn't work, I advise starting the diagnostic process by checking through the electric circuitry, wiring, switches and solenoid.

2 oil caps on fzr 1000 is 1 engine n 1 gear box

no...engine and gearbox are integrated with 1 oil supply.
If you have 2 oil fillers it sounds like you have a clutch casing fitted that's not original to that model...perhaps a thunderace

Rovermg zr speed sensor location

The workshop manual shows it on top of the gearbox , I have been looked for it on a 2004 model. This the has the speed sensor fitted on top of the gearbox but it has no connection (It is fitted with a yellow cap). It seems that on some models (but it is not mentioned in the manual) the speed is derived from the ABS sensors !

In dash reading reads " Gearbox Fault". I don't

It means you have a problem in the shifter. Is it a five or six speed?

Gearbox interchange between cars

406 comes normally with a gearbox model BE3 of 5 speed (as limited were with 6 speed). As late models of 405 and 306 are using the same gearboxes. Mazda 2.0i zx was sharing the same gearbox (i don't know exactly the model year).
Anyway, you need the exact gearbox model to find out which car model else were built with these types of gearboxes. Manual gearboxes with same models can be exchanged from any car or van and have nothing to do with car ECUs.

Am replacing the steering gearbox on a 1996 GMC 2500 Sierra, 4X4, 6.5 Diesel due to a worn input shaft. On the worn gearbox it is noticed that the most forward of the two hydraulic ports in the gearbox has...

I don't know but I suspect it will matter which port the restrictor and check valve are fitted to.

I personally wouldn't worry about the six stud vs eight stud argument. People tend to buy their own commercial vehicles and there are usually many available options that can be specified at order and fitted during production or changed later. The purpose is to make the finished vehicle more suitable for where it will spend the majority of it's time.

It is usually possible to buy a commercial vehicle with the "wrong" equipment fitted that is still in a proper condition... In my experience it is certainly not unusual to buy one sort of truck and uprate or downrate it in order to qualify for a different rate of taxation.

GM vehicles used to be fitted with a plate embossed with lines of groups of 2, 3 or 4 numbers that are meaningless to most people but when decoded tells the story of the vehicle options fitted to the vehicle - gear ratio, fuel and air filtration, suspension and so forth...
It is best to be guided by those and the chassis number and certainly fit like-for-like unless it is for an approved modification.
