    It seems to me that the two pins(listed as one short and one long) that hold the bayonet cap just press in and one is longer and also locates the gear lever so is it possible someone has put them in the wrong holes ?

    OK let's try again.

    The lever has a sphere at the bottom with a grove in it which is used to align, see picture below

    There is a corresponding pin on the inside which it slides on, see picture below

    15054961898571434738675.jpg

    On my other two gearboxes this pin is on the oposite side and therefore my gear lever fits correctly.

    Obviously this one doesn't.

    The only explanation I can see is that there are two part numbers for the gear levers and in changing them they put the pin and slot the other way round.

    Heaven knows why?

    Any ideas?

    Adrian

    Post from Ben Caswell moved to this thread. Note this is shown out of sequence because of the date/time stamp is too early.

    Would have been better to make no comment and rename this thread.
    I went looking to find the threads I should ignore.

    Thanks Paul for deleting the threads.

    I made the mistake of pressing enter twice, I am sorry if this has caused any issues.

    I couldn't delete the thread even after looking at the FAQ section which implies it doesn't always work.

    I will take the virtual slap on the wrist and hope I don't do it again.

    Regards

    Adrian

    Could the pins in the wrong way be that it is from the Triumph version of the gearbox?

    I think it is right as my gearbox is the same.

    Hi Adrian, I think the extension in your picture above is a marina one and looking at some mg midget gearboxes I think your lever is from an MG. Can the pins be turned around?
    Cheers, Martin.
