Re: Gear stick wont centre
I, for I have a 147, too have this issue. When lubricated with WD40 or lithium grease, the fore and aft and side-to-side movement is fine. But the stick still does not centre. I get no cruching of any gears. Going from 5th to 3rd, for example, is a lottery so much so that often I end up in 2nd or 4th instead because I get fed up and have no drive.
So, it could still be one or more of several things...a small worn plate appears to be the most likely thing. An indie has suggested that for £100 they can replace the fulcrum? (don't know what they mean as there are a number of pivots about. Most of the cost would be labour 60-90mins they say.
The picture above is different from what I have. I have orange and blue coloured plastic bits.
I'm still baffled. Any ideas?
