    Well , tuesday was MOT day .

    Luckily it was not pouring down with a CAPITAL P, and all was well , found a slight brake light infraction , which turned out ,after i had just about dissemboweled the dash , to be a beak in the wire under the heat shrink next to a soldered joint down by the switch , so i crimped it .this took a long time to find .

    good news was the emissions were pretty good ...







    and to celebrate another year of mot'ness , i popped on my new name plates ..










    noicy noice noice ... i like em !





    regards

    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 .

    yes , when the bikers were kicked out of the highwayman we all went to the 4 horseshoes , and sometimes those ones as well .

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.

    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 .
