I was out this afternoon and all of a sudden, just as I was changing from first to second the gearlever went all loose and I found I could wave it about without it doing anything useful. After a bit of experimentation, I found that by pulling up on the gearlever, I could change gear, albeit in a rather hit and miss fashion. What has happened is that the lever has dropped and fallen right through the remote shaft bush. The plastic(?) bush that the lever sits in seems to have disintegrated and the little plastic blob on the lower end of the lever seems a bit chewed. What do I need to fix this? I seem to recall that there are two types of lever, one like mine with a plastic "blob" that runs direct in the metal bush on the remote shaft and a metal "blob" that has a plastic insert in the remote shaft. Are these interchangeable? The car is a 1974 2200SC.
