Anyone got this problem, I have a 5 speed o/d box with reverse up and to the left, selecting reverse puts so much stress on the console that for the second time it has parted company from the vertical panels. I recently remade the verticals from plywood as the old original chipboard ones were so deteriorated that the would no longer hold the screws and thought the problem solved, but alas no, it’s fallen apart again. I think the problem is that the gear lever needs to go so far to the left for reverse that the stress involved means it pulls the platform away from the verticals so I think that the hole/space is just not wide enough for the gear lever withe the 5 speed. I think I will have to fabricate a whole new piece with a wider gate but still look factory. Any thoughts gentlemen?
