    Rover P6 Gearbox question

    Hi guys,

    Anyone know anything about Rover P6 Gearbox's? got a 4 speed manual and there is a hell of a lot of play in the gearstick, no self centering, and is quite hard to find any gear and nothing to stop you going into reverse from first when looking to go into second.

    Can this be right?

    We pulled the top cover off yesterday and found the below, it looks like there should be some kind of spherical bush on the end of the selector?

    Any help is appreciated?

    Cheers Matt

    Normally the bush on the gearstick goes and if my memory is right the reverse lock out was on the stick mounting (the bush under those 3 bolts ) other than that i cant help

    Good luck

    Somthing about the 4 speed box, I seem to have read the box is based around the MGB box, so there may be a source to try, a place to try could be Rimmer Bros,

    Matt,

    Give Simon at RobSport a call, he's an old mate / drinking partner of mine and they used to be a wash with 4 sp boxes.

    They specialise in TR7's and putting V8's into them so they used to buy up all the P6's they could find

    I'm 99% sure there should be a plastic sleeve/bush on the end of the selector that locates in the gearbox. I seem to remember they used to break up regularly, could ahve been Triumph, but I think it was Rover. Possibly....
