S2 oem gear lever

Recommended Posts

 Hello

Anyone got an OEM S2 K series gear lever they are willing to sell to a good home? 

Mine came with short shift and it's just not working as it should and I've run out of adjustment (or mechanical talent). I'd like to try a switch back to oem to see if that works.

I'd be grateful for anyone who can help me out. 

Cheers

Will have a rummage in the garage tomorrow, sure I have my old s2 Elise one somewhere. I swopped it for a short shift and tbh it was a great improvement, what’s not working on yours ? . Sure mine came from billy 5### or similar on here or seloc. Not sure if he still does them. Might be worth a search and message if your having problems ??

Thank you! V. Much appreciated Rich

I've got an elise parts item. Agreed; when it works it feels great.  from lever to the cables and the linkage/pivots it's its all been renewed. I've run out of adjustment and still have a reluctant 1st and 2nd gear. Drove last year but after afew hairly moments trying to get 2nd for a tight bend I've resolved to fix it. I suspect a move to oem will give me a bit more tolerance in the adjustment and all will be fine. Trying this and it not making a difference will also help me determine if it's actually the 1st-2nd synchro ring in the gearbox. 

Thanks again

Will

It may also be worth changing the oil (if not already done) It can sometimes give some improvement in synchro operation

Yep sage advice by all accounts.

I did change with some oem rover mtf94 at the start of last year but it made no difference to the change 🙄

Reluctant to take the box out before trying a normal stick.

Hey Richbk

A valiant effort nevertheless. Thanks for taking time out to look, its much appreciated. 

I'll widen the search to SELOC and see what turns up there

Thanks again

MrWill
