One of those jobs you start and then wish you hadn't... So, the story so far. Floppy gearstick, and gears sometimes hard to select - particularly 2nd moving from 3rd, and 1st really needing to push it in. Adjusted the gear selection plate, which improved selection of 1st and 3rd at the cost of Reverse being a bit harder, but I could live with that. But while doing that, saw that the front shift rod bush was missing. So I changed that. However, 1st and 2nd very hard to find. Didn't worry too much, as I still planned on changing the gear selector coupler. Changed that (which is a fun job on a sloping driveway), and now everything a bit less wobbly, but cannot engage first. 2nd gear fairly easy, depending on position of selector plate. A few things to note... Yes, the gear selector plate is the right way round. The gear selection pin on the bottom of the gear stick is very worn (anyone knows where I can get one of these that isn't on backorder?) The gear selection plate also showing signs of wear. I haven't done the rear shift rod bushes yet - I'll wait until things stop getting worse before changing more stuff. Clutch possibly got a bit more freeplay than ideal, but doesn't creep forward when fully depressed, so I assume that's okay (also, buggered if I can turn the butterfly nut). Now I'm not sure whether something else needs adjusting, or whether I'm just ham-fisted with the positioning of the gear selector plate (someone feel free to take me through it again in baby steps... pretend I'm an idiot... because I'm an idiot).
