Double clutching to select 2nd gear

Recommended Posts

The left cable is correctly positioned, it looks odd because the gaiter is missing the end that sits in the first (rearmost) groove on the cable. The gaiter ought to be replaced.

. It looks as though the left cable (as you look down at it) is not in the cable end groove. And the retaining plate is still round the wrong way. 

 

I'm sorry, but I don't know which is the retaining plate you are referring to. Can you point it out to me?

Tks

I think the gaiters are NLA items ....

 

On this note, my workshop managed to replace the rubber bushes with Teflon bushes. He will assemble everything today and test the car again.

Will update when I next hear from him.

Yes, the original gaiters are NLA but the replacement can be improved upon. Using solid bushes instead of the rubber bushes will worsen the NVH characteristics.

The plate with a single bolt that sits over both cables to keep them engaged in the mounting slots. The parts manual shows it as being fitted 180 degrees to the one you have. I am not sure whether this makes any difference, but you may want to check.

I see,, so I should get the replacement from SJ. I didn't know about the effect of replacing the rubber bushes with Teflon type. I will monitor and see how things go. Tks.

Yes, that's the one. Like I said, it may make no difference, but check anyway.
