    Thanks mark

    Have a word with Steve on here. He runs Northampton gearbox centre. He can rebuild these gearboxes with his eyes closed at very reasonable rates.

      Permanent fix is just fitting a new roll pin, use the correct specified one and it will last for years. I would not advice to use something else like e.g. a bolt, as when that bolt snaps, part of it may fall in the gearbox, damaging gears etc, which will cost loads, whereas as the pin breaks it will stay in place.
      also not too hard a job to sort, remove battery and CC box and you’re able to extract the selector mechanism from the box once you undone the cables. Pretty straightforward job

          Normally any decent shop that is specialised in industrial fasteners should be able to get you a correct one.
          Dunno wherabouts in UK you should find stuff like that as i’m Belgian 😎
          just googled this : https://shop4fasteners.co.uk/fastene...ring-pins.html, they come per 50pieces, but at around a tenner for 50 😁 that is good value for money imho

                  Can you only tell if the pin is broke by taking it out?

                  or can you see it’s broke

                    Gear selector mechanism needs to be taken out, but if you lost all gears, chances are very good the roll pin’s broken.

                  The pin is solid to hit out am afraid of rolling the edge over....is there a certain way it comes out?

                  thanks mark

                    Comes out either way, never had problems removing any, just hit it with a hammer until flush, afterwards use a drift punch
                    if broken, make sure it lines up, if not you are not able to punch it through, if broken try and remove the shift finger from the axle and the punch the pin out

                      So I have removed the scroll pin and that is all good.....so I’m gonna let Demon Pete sort it for me 🤦*♂️ Does anyone know the torque setting for the gearbox mount.
