156 gearbox linkage

the gear stick on my 156 is not self centerng and is rather stiff
is this the same a the problem on 147s where the linkage seizes or is it something else?
any ideas would be very helpful

Re: 156 gearbox linkage

I fixed mine like this:

Intake off & battery out

Cable unclipped & shoved out of the way (top of first pic)

Undid this nut with 17mm socket


Removed the shaft - which looked pretty clean

Then rolled up some fine grade sandpaper & cleaned out the casting - loadsa crud came out


Re-assembled using plenty of grease on the shaft & there is now a massive improvement
