Re: CSP Shifter

Hi dsbus. Thanks for the reply,i'm now thinking that i have been supplied the wrong year shifter as csp do 3/4 different models for the various years of bus. My van was built in 1957 but the standard shifter seems to have a larger ball on the end than the csp one. When fitted the csp was very sloppy...

Re: Go on then, here's my 66.

Hi Kev.
All's not lost yet ! Get another engine installed in the morning and worry about your engine later. Give me a ring if you need a hand with anything. If you need my engine ring me early and i'll bring it round.

shift rod bushes

Which cross members do the 2 shift rod bushes fit into?
My van is a 58.
