Oil Screen & gear lever
I have just joined the forum and have a question about my 91 Big red 300 2WD. I have both engine covers off replacing the stator and centrifugel one way bearing. With the rhs side cover off, I cleaned the oil strainer. There were a lot of large plastic/rubber debris on the strainer, which I was concerned about. Has anyone else experienced this, or know what it could be, is it common? I was woundering if something somewhere had 'given up' and disintegrated, but not sure what.
Also, I know this is devisive, but my gear lever and shift shaft splines are worn badly and it was welded on. I ground it off ok, was going to replace but the shift shaft is discontinued and haven't been able so source one second hand in UK. I read on a forum somone had drilled through the lever and shaft and put a bolt through. Has anyone done this successfully? Because the shaft diameter is fairly small so would have to be a small bolt, was thinking putting a M5 bolt all the way through and putting a nut on it.
