    UN1 Rod Change Reverse Gear Lockout

    Having had a look around without any luck, does anyone know where i can get a reverse gear lockout plate/mechanism. Reverse on mine is left and back. I have seen the Tornado cable mechanism, but would rather a selector guide plate incorporating a reverse gear latch of some form. Any ideas?

    UN1 Output shafts

    I’ve just purchased MDA GT40 with a Renault UN1 gearbox, are the output shafts meant to float? The hubs that slide over them appear to move horizontally on the output shafts too, this alone seems a little excessive as though the lock pins have been omitted? Thanks in advance:uneasy:
