Elan / Elan +2 Gear Lever Part Wanted

PostPost by: Mazzini » Mon Feb 17, 2020 9:56 am

I'm looking for the bottom part of the gear lever, the bit with the ball on it, as shown in the centre of the attached photo.

Please PM me if you can help.

Many thanks

Rob, check this listing
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Cortina ... SwGPFeMZrb

Perhaps the seller can lop off the top part to ease shipping but you 'll have to have the remainder
machined.

Greg, that’s totally different, he’s after an anti-sizzle style

Greg and Phil,

Thanks for your replies.

I have a long Cortina/Anglia type stick which as a last resort I could cut down and re-thread to anti-sizzle spec, but I may just bend and shorten it to sizzle spec... I'm conflicted.

Cheerio,

R

Hello,

I have one but has some corrosion on part of the ball, it could be repaired if need be.

If interested I am in Ontario, Canada.

Happy to send on, will not be expensive other than shipping depending on where you are?

Ball is a separate part, held by cross pin.

I'm sorry I don't think I thanked you for your kind offer. I'm still looking for the part, but was hoping to find one closer to home.

No problem,

I think you did reply, the part is on my window shelf not going anywhere. If you are not in a rush I may be in Scotland this fall if you do not find one, I can mail from there.

Stay well,
Alasdair.
