[ROVERNET - UK] P6 gear change

Pardon me if someone has already answered this. The in box is long and I 
haven't read them all yet. The bottom of the P6 gear shift also has a rubber 
bushing. Manual gearboxes leak oil out the rear seal, sometimes a little 
sometimes a lot. Rubber and oil don't do well together. I replaced mine with 
nylon about 20yrs ago. The shift is much more positive. It should survive 
the oil better also. With patience it is possible to make one and push it on 
the end of the gearshift. I used a drill and ground the bushing to the 
proper size with a file. I then drilled the recess hole and swivelled the 
bushing on the bit to carve out a recess that would snap over the ball of 
the gearshift. Emory cloth can be used to smooth the inside.
Hope this helps.
