Stage 1 LT95 gear lever?

Post by Geoff »

Does anyone know what this is?:

Under the rubber gaitors on the gear levers on my Stage Ones there is what the above ebay seller refers to as a 'damper' and which also appears in the parts book. I don't know what these are, what they do, or how, and one doesn't appear to be present on the above lever. Can anyone explain for me?

Many gearsticks are two piece and vulcanised together. Creating a vibration dampener. This is poorly illustrated in the parts book.
On army Moke this was the weak point. Works Minis had a similar arrangement but they also added a piece of hose over the shaft, up to the knob.

I'd have to go and look but the presence of a dampener is the reason why the inner gearstick boot is a nightmare to change. You need supple rubber, luck and lube.

Hm, such sophistication . Being under the gaitor, I never noticed they were there before this seller mentioned one, but now I recall that on my old 2.25 I kept a length of elastic tied between the red and yellow knobs to stop one rattling! (can't remember which) Anyway, thanks for reply.
