TR5 Gear knob

Recommended Posts

I am looking for an 'original' gear knob for my UK TR5. There is one at present on ebay for £35 which is made from bakelite, which is a black round knob with no markings. Does anyone know if this is correct? Also is there supposed to be a locking nut underneath the knob?

 

Thank you in anticipation.

Yes black bakelite without markings and has a threaded insert to screw to you gear stick There should be a lock nut beneath it to lock in place.

 

When you say original do you mean NOS 131246 (36.5 mm dia spherical black bakelite) ?

or will what is currently in the market be acceptable at 1 1/2" = 38 mm which has the threaded insert to screw to your gear knob? (NB - Ther is a 42 mm item in the market place too)

 

Here is what I believe to be the 38mm item at under £20.00 https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-22B19
