This is the set up that I run at the moment for my gear linkage on the gear stick end, which gives me all the gears in the correct order and also a lockout for reverse gear.

Although the UN1 is a 5 speed gear box I used the 4 speed gear stick arrangement from the VW T3 as this gave the best results with the gear shift pattern on the UN1 (namely reverse along side of second and 5th along side of 3rd)

I hope to build a cable linkage kit to see if this gives any improvement over the shift rod set up.

I have added little rubber boots onto my rear gear linkage rose joint as there are some signs of wear caused by road grim flying about and sticking to the moving parts of my gear linkage and grinding it down.

Thank you for idea. Works perfectly on my UN1- just will have to modify guard box under the shifter- otherwise I cant shift in 5th and reverse.

Thank you!

Nice work. I would suggest that you fit either the rubber boots over the rose joints or apply a heavy coating of grease to keep the road spray and dust sticking to your linkage which in time will cause stiffness.

Tim.

Are these specific rubber parts that are used for joint like that or you used
something "stock" and modified to fit?

These are proper rubber boots for the joints. Ask your supplier if they sell them.
