That was the most convenient position for connecting the OD fuse on the 
75 V8 without cutting wires, and fortuitous.  On the 73 with dash OD 
switch I had fitted the fuse at the switch, so cross-connecting the 
fuses isn't directly possible.  However for most years the same effect 
can be obtained by swapping over the white and yellow wires at the 
bullet connectors in the engine bay, including where fuses have not been 
fitted in either circuit.  On later North American models with OD on 4th 
gear only it would involve white and white/brown wires.
