    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

    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 ?

    those plastic 'pivot blocks' that hold the gearstick 'ball' were always breaking up on dad's transits mate (admittedly after 100's of 1000's of miles, lol). you're metal replacement idea sounds good, plenty of moly grease and it'll be just fine even with some misalignment of the stick (ie not straight up).
