Gearbox cover help


Hello,

can anyone confirm if the gearbox cover is from a TR3?

If so, does it use the same gaiters for the gear lever and handbrake? Mine never had either, hence the question.

 

All the best, Gary

Judging by the illustrations and pictures I've seen of TR3 gearbox covers, I don't think so.

When you say 'mine never had either' I assume you mean both gaiters?

I'm not certain about the gearstick one but, from the remaining fragments of carpet left in my car, I think the handbrake gaiter was stitched into the carpet.

Thanks Mike.

Correct, I only have the cover, nothing else. II'll have to see what I can make up or make fit.

Hi Guys,

This is what I made for the handbrake gaiter, ( and you can just see at the top the same for the gear shift gaiter) I molded a face/flange in GRP and then made a "gasket" in plastic and self-tappered it on...and then made the gaiter out of a wellington boot, an old inner tube and super glue, it works well!

also notice the speedo cable drive is in a large grommet (ford fiesta floor bung I seem to remember) and also filled with silicon mastic for good measure.

 

 

add cable tie around the the handbrake lever where it comes out of the bespoke gaiter and its almost "gas tight"

The "scrapyard gearshift gaiter" is hidden under the "Witches hat" that they seem to have liked in the fifties...bit ugly but hey, that's a straight copy of an original...and is also "gas tight"
