5 speed gaiter

PostPost by: mcclelland » Tue Jul 17, 2018 10:01 am

Hi all,

just putting my S130/5 back together. My question to you all is there some sort of seal / gaiter / diaphragm that fits where the gear lever comes through the chassis. Another words if you remove the centre tunnel console with its bellowed gaiter should there be something else there??
If so does anyone have a picture and where do these parts originate from. I know there is one fitted to the 4 speed, is it the same one for the 5 speed??

With many thanks, George.
