A common problem on the LD and D gearbox is a loose and sloppy 'christmas tree'. Basically, the three bronze bushes wear the casing away over the years and causes various unwanted rattles. Luckily our precision engineer is well used to re-making these bushes for us.
(In trying to demonstrate the movement in the bushes the pics are a bit blurred... Sorry!)
We rectify the problem by re-making and fitting new bushes that actually fit the aluminium casing which has been worn away by the old bronze bushes.
