Re: Gear change alignment.

Gotta laugh not cry. Tried two different rotational settings, no joy.

Re: Gear change alignment.

Nope still not got it. Rotated about 4 clicks.
Just seen what’s happening- shaft is rotating. Guess clip isn’t done up tight enough.

Re: Gear change alignment.

Thanks Andy. I should’ve been more specific- I’ve changed the tube, socket and plate to diesel ones. Well, it was one unit I bought years ago, but not checked everything.

Gear change alignment.

Can’t make it work- all I get is forwards.
