[TR] 62 TR4

 Are you referring to the ignition switch?  I had to replace the switch on my TR6.  It would cut out at speed on the highway and I had to wiggle it to restore power to the coil and make it go again.  Meantime the exhaust would fill with unburned air/fuel mixture and when the power was restored "BANG."
Oh, and the overdrive would drop out making matters all the worse.
