    Default Gear stick not self centering.

    Hi all

    Recently started to notice when changing gears if the vehicle has driven for a long while it can sometimes intermittently not self centre again when taking out of gear and also feel a little stiff when putting into any gear.

    No whine or gearstick movements at all so know its not internal synchro's related, have been trying to read a bit online and some people mention sticking pin on turret? if this is the fault does anyone what exactly I need todo?.



    thanks

    Heard of this recently and some lubrication on the linkages under the battery tray was the fix.

    I actually could probably do with this now. Mine has become a bit sticky.

    Might have to purchase that short shifter next so it'll be logical to do at the same time.

    I still can't understand your accent. All I heard in your last post was; "You there, goat herd boy, have you any cheese for sale?".
