Mark , I am predicting the worse scenario , the last problem was, in all reality, never really solved 100% so my plan is to start from scratch with a good second hand [ or even sixth hand :) ]remote . Get it all out ,rods and all, and also look at Rose joints this time around . The dam thing is putting a downer on what is not a bad car . I must admit that my own ineptitude and advancing years has compounded the issue . So if you can find one [ I appreciate you have a lot on ] it would be a great help ,but I hope you do not mind me casting my net wide Regards Richard .

Thanks Mark , thats thrown me a bit because I thought that the 3 rod selector mechanism was specific to the Reliant . Which Capri are you thinking of ? As it may give me another search option . Thanks Richard .

Can`t tell you which model specically.
I bought a couple from capriman in London a few years ago because the gear levers were getting scarce.
According to Ford specialist Tickover :idea: the Type F Gearbox - side lever 4 speed gearbox with remote gearstick fitted to late Mk1, Mk2 & Mk3 2.0 OHC models

it may give you another search option but the capri owners are prepared to pay more for their parts, ford tax some call it. I sold one recently on ebay which went to a ford dealer in Birmingham who wanted any others I had. I only sold him the one when I found out what he sold them for :shock: I will have others if you can't find one else where.
