The 1st/2nd gearchange forks used in classic Minis – and in thousands of kitcars – are prone to wear. The factory shift forks were made of a brass-type material and were quite soft as they were designed to wear before the gear; this means that they MUST be replaced often if the box is to continue to shift like new!

Fortunately, MiniSpares has just released two newly re-tooled selector fork options. Both have been manufactured in the UK using the lost wax casting process to produce the parts in an aluminium bronze alloy. The result is a marked improvement on the original brass-type version.

The first gear fork is for the four-synchro pre-rod- change gearbox only. Order as part number 22G889MS at £102.60 inc VAT.

The second type is for the early three-synchro gearbox. Order as part number 22A611 also at £102.60 inc VAT.
