The simplest solution would be to get a TTL Shoe Cord (make sure it's the one 
for the T series, and not the one for the F280). This assumes you have a Shoe 
4 for your OM-2n and a Shoe 1 for the OM-1MD. The Shoe Cord slides into the 
hot shoe and has a regular TTL connector at the other end that plugs into the 
socket on the side of the T32. This solution will also work with the OM-2S, 
but since the OM-2S has a TTL connector on the body, a neater solution for 
that camera is just a plain TTL cord.

To summarize the various options:

OM-1MD: Shoe 1 and Shoe Cord, or you could get a TTL Auto Connector 3 and cut 
off the extra pin and use a regular TTL cord. Another good option for the 
OM-1 is the Bounce Grip 2, which has a PC cord to plug into the PC socket 
(make sure you are set for X synch!). The T32 really comes into it's own on 
the BG2.

OM-2n: Shoe 4 and Shoe Cord, or TTL Auto Connector 4 and a TTL cord, or BG2 
and TTL cord

OM-2S: Shoe cord or TTL cord or BG2 and TTL cord.

FWIW, most of my flash is done with an OM-2n or OM-2S, winder 2, T32 on BG2, 
an 0.3M TTL cord and an M. Grip Cord which lets me fire the thing with the 
button on the BG2. Big, heavy, balances well with my 35-70/4, recycles fast, 
scares away most small to medium sized wildlife on site.

Hope this helps,
