It works:-) :-) :-) So I took her out for a spin and one of the clips holding one of the gearbox selector rods in place(toploader) fell off leaving me to drive home stuck in first gear:-( .Does anyone know of a place that would have the proper selector rod clipsas the one's on this box are catching on each other as the rods move back and forth.
