I am getting parts for garage to repair

Hi there,

I have owned a Brumby, I modded my shifter to eliminate the slop.

This thread may help you.

Take note of the slop where the selector goes on the rail.

Hi Georg,

Can you get your garage to read the additional info I have attached?

Parts are harder to find now, but there are many ways to make it good again.

Any mechanic with some knowledge will understand.

Hope this helps.
