    Re: Sloppy Gear Lever

    I tracked down new bushes from simply bearings in Leigh Lancashire. 01942269837
    Their model number is MB. 1815.DLU wrapped steel plain bearing bush.If you remove the old bushes there is a part number on there.
    I also swapped the gear change pivot with the brake pivot which tightened everything up nicely. I dont tend to use the back brake so the little extra play makes no difference to me. Cost for both delivered 6.46 Bargain

    As per post 3 + 4 , the service is still available if required.
