By repositioning the cable end 10mm it has shortened the 1-6 for/aft gear lever movement but the sided movement is the same travel. It feel slightly stiffer to operate but might help with good brand of synthetic 75w80 gear oil.

Nice work Bob, sounds like we have both been doing the same kind of jobs.

Very interested to hear more about the gear linkage change.  What brand of gearbox oil did you use?  I went for Redline MTL 75w80 as it’s designed specifically for hard to shift boxes.  How much has it shortened the gear lever throw by?

Looking at my photo of when I injected oil into the gear cable ends, it seems you’ve changed the end fixing to a ball joint, presume you had to drill the arm / lever to fit it?

Here's a pic of mine.

Dave,

Measured 10mm from pin, drilled 5.5mm hole and tapped a 6mm thread and screwed in a ball joint and put a nut on the under side also. The gear lever throw reduced but not measured but is slightly stiffer to operate. Some people say you should remove the end weight of the selector, I tried it without it fitted but didn't make any difference to me, so refitted it. The oil is Fuchs Titan 75w-80 GL4.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for posting the above.. interested to hear more about raising the seat height as I hadn't considered that in my list of 'jobs to do'... what did you use for the spacers?

Cheers,

I had the spacers, but they were 20mm dia with a 8mm hole and 12mm thick. I put 8mm repair washer above and blow spacer and got some longer screws. A 10mm nut would do the same as a spacer.

Had the under tray of has had a rattle and found the exhaust 3rd cat delete pipe flange to the flexi bolt broken. Removed rear exhaust and had to grind and  drill out the broken screw as would not knock out and it was welded on the rear flange. Refitted the silencer with a new removable bolt and nut, so when I get a new silencer in the future it will be easier to remove.
