There's a complete gearlever assembly on ebay..... a bit pricey but you could always resell the bits you don't need.

Hi
I tried to get a sleeved nut for mine last year, although listed at SJ Sportscars they didnt have any in stock and wanted a pattern to be able to machine one for me which I obviously didn't have, so I made my own which is quite straight forward. Get a hex headed bolt that fits the bush, drill out the centre and tap the correct thread for the gearstick which I think is 5/16 unf but you'll have to check.

Cheers

Jerry

Alex,
I thought there were free dxf viewers about. If you get stuck PM and I'll try to convert it to something else.

Hi Guys,

Big thanks to John for sending me the drawing which I managed to open. I am now halfway through making a batch of the sleeve-nuts which appear to be out of stock with the suppliers? So if anyone needs one please feel free to PM me.

A donation from each one sold will go the Great Ormond Street Hospital...... I do need to take back my costs though. as I am now retired.

Cheers!
