    My part of the world (formerly) south Oxon, its beech woods and Chiltern Hills. Stoke Row is famous for an amazing looking cast iron well donated by a Maharajah for some reason and a pub, the Crooked Billet that has no bar - drinks just served from the kitchen door. The Crooked Billet is a posh eatery now so not really a pub any more. BTW car looks great, good that the gear thing was trivial.

    Seems I have a plethora of U/J's with splined sockets and a dearth of rod's with splines on ...

    probably off to Car Builder solutions as mine are 19mm and not probably not a size found on most cars now days ?

    rally design do the splined (each end) shafts and uj's too. bit cheaper than cbs too from memory. also they keep 1 metre lengths of tube that are the right size to sleeve the shaft if you need to lengthen it.
    neil.
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    Indeedy , the maharajah of benares , i lived in stoke row for 20 odd years , nice woods ,,,pushed my bsa bantam around them for miles lol. played pool in the crooked billet a lot too .



    little bit done on the gearshift gizmo ..


    here is the plastic bush that died ..





    and i decided to make one out of metal .


    found an old hunk of steel ,machined it , and thin disc-ed off the bit i needed ..
















    found an old exhaust flange for the plate ..












    slotted plate , and started slotting the bush..









    once slotted i will weld the plate to the bush ,and machine and fit and see how it shifts .




    regards
    robert

    well , new gear shift bush made from steel instead of plastic , and fitted .

    boy oh boy what a difference , side play reduced to zero , up and down play down to a few mm , i was not expecting such a total change , it feels like a short shift .

    very happy with it .



    regards
