Default PG1 selector rod roll pin

I have put my selector rod roll pin in a "safe place" when i stripped my car back down to do the body work and now I can't remember where my safe place was does anyone have a spare one knocking about that they don't need?

Roll pins suck

Nuts and bolts are much better

While your there I'd recommend chopping the rubber factory uj off and fitting a metal steering uj from an mg zr / 200, no more slop

I also used a m8 bolt with a nyloc, those roll pins are the devils work!

Heres a link to the UJ mod, I had it saved. For mine I cut apart the stanrd rover uj thing turned a solid insert to get rid of the slop

I tried a bolt on my Honda linkage but it gave too much slop at the lever

I have a spare roll pin here if you decide not to go down the uj route

Drill it out slightly bigger and use the correct size bolt?

Or use two at different angles?

I always liked the roll pins easy to use with the correct size punch. That said I'm fairly sure my last linkage had a steering in bolted on lol

And if it helps I'm 99% sure it's the same roll pin used in b16/18 engined Honda's so you can get one at a honda dealer.
