on the same subject, my 6 speed box recently ate itself. Palmer & Phillips did a good job of replacing it with a low mileage example I picked up from a breakers. The icing on the cake was that the breakers gave me the box with all ancillaries - change cables, slave cylinder, gear stick AND... nice low mileage (42K) knob.
unfortunately though, when I got the car back, the gate diagram on the top of the knob is not straight - just visually, the gate pattern appears slanted 30 degrees off! Can anyone tell me, do I just need to give that a twist, or is there more to it..? Picked the car up after hours, otherwise I would have asked them!
