Do you have +2 indicators not cancelling and a 3d printer ?

Do you have a problem with the direction indicators on your early +2 failing to self cancel ? In my case I found it impossible to adjust the mechanism so that it would work in both directions. I seemed the the 'peg' on the collar on the steering column was simply too short - presumably been worn away over the last 50 odd years.
This being the case designing a replacement for 3d printing was a simple matter and the result can be downloaded here:

On my printer (Anycubic i3 Mega) holes generally come out smaller than planned and this file has been 'tweaked' to allow for this.

Please note - if you choose to use this its entirely at your own risk - I dont want to get sued because the item fell apart resulting a smashed car or worse!
