3D printed Gear Lever Retainer

Postby Howard_B » 02 May 2022 20:28

On the US tr7-and-tr8-forum they have been developing a 3D printed gear lever retainer over the past year or so. Knowing the problem I had replacing mine when it broke, this may be of interest to others. Its just been announced that the testing is finished and it will be available shortly:-

This part at the top of the gear lever gaiter seems to be broken or missing on a lot of our cars. There is an equivalent and possibly identical part listed for Spitfires under the part code ZKC301, which is currently available from Rimmer Brothers and possibly other suppliers as well.

Hi Howard, apologies I should have paid closer attention :oops: That US retainer looks like an interesting development.
