Any recommendation for a manual covering 1.8strip down refurb and rebuild, is the Haines offering say good?

Andrew has pinned a guide to rebuilding the PG1 gearbox at the top of the Rover Chat section on here.

I have seen that and will refer to it when I get round to stripping mine but I could also do with a bit of a general manual covering ancillary things like mountings and gear selector mechanisms etc. In my case I didn't remove the engine or gearbox myself so have no idea how these issues work For instance in one of the build threads (excellent btw) there is a hell of a lot of information on fitting a metro frame but then one of the photos shows a large box set into the bulkhead with a caption saying it was to clear the gear linkage but with no other reference to the issue in the rest of the thread.without access to what that looks like I think I'll order a Haines manual and hope it of more use than the last one I bought.

Unfortunately Iíve never come across a manual for the PG1 or R65 gearboxes.
If you list your queries on here, Iím sure they can all be answered.
