Had a mechanic friend fit my LSD box but he's just rang me with a problem. He's saying When you attach the cables to the box its dragging the gear stick over to one side so you cant select any gears.

Anyone any ideas why this could be happening?

Thanks in advance
Ashley

The gearbox cable selector bracket that's bolted to the box to hold cables in place where the selector cable's are held in place with the U clips

Wasn't far off haha

Yer pretty close mate. Thanks again for the quick response. This box still crunching going into 2nd same as the last box. I assumed it was the box that was causing the crunching could it possibly anything else? It feel crunchy higher up like just below the stick? Any ideas?

Would that issue not cause all gears to not engage properly and not just 1st to 2nd?

I've owned 3 starlets and 4 gearboxes and every single one has had a 2nd gear crunch. Is it just me or does everyone's starlets crunch in 2nd?
