5-speed selector fork wanted


Recommended Posts

  • Gold FFM

I'm rebuilding the 5-speed box for my Elan +2. I never was able to select 1st gear, turns out the selector fork is worn and not engaging properly with the synchro. Unfortunately, none of the usual suspects can supply the 1/2 fork. And I'm reluctant to try a weld-on repair because of the material of the fork and the potential consequences should it fail.

Anyone know where I might find a new or used fork? I'm surprised there isn't more available, isn't the selector mechanism the same as in the Austin Maxi, just like the gears?


I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.
