Pete, thanks for the info - I spotted the 3 screws holding the unit to the consule but was reluctant to undo them without advice incase spring an' bits started flying in all directions.
chrisallse - thanks for your info - daft question maybe but which end did you put the oil into the cables?
I know that if you want to put the shift in reverse with the engine stopped then the prop must also be turned otherwise damage can be caused.
