Pokeing around in my box of tricks I found a spark plug that fits both of my selector shaft for exstending it, do I trust a nipon denso spark plug for this, well they aren't any use as a spark plug so it must have a use ,

Well spotted Graham, I still have it and it never seems to work!
Now men, take a look at your shaft !! Is it bent like mine?
Is it normal? I don't want it to affect my greasy gearbox ?

Weird as heck!! I was thinking and remembered I drilled a hole in my shaft and left a drill bit in it that locked it into 1st
Gear , I went back and checked a "cheep anti theft thred I started, and my memory was correct, this was my unit/shaft

No lol, exsust time I suppose , I tacked mild steel end to manifold with ark welder so it's in shape, I'm annoyed about my handbrake qwadrant and cable not giving space for my 2inch pipe , I may sqwash it so it doesn't sit outside and under floor line,
