    Default 1989 CS3 with Kent / 4-speed - shifter bushing & lighting source?

    Fun weekend with the Caterham CS3 out for a nice Sunday drive. Love the 1600 Kent and the Brooklands screens provide better protection than expected.

    I do have an issue with worn shifter bushings. I've disassembled and the forward bushing are shot. I've searched the forum here as well as online and haven't found a source. I expect Dave Bean Engineering may have what I need, but any other pointers here for parts and R&R procedure?



    Also like to find suitable lens and replacement lamp for the right-rear which I presume are fog-light and second backup.





    Thanks in advance,

    Are you talking about the plastic ball on the shifter? Check out Ford Pinto transmissions. That is what I put in my Locost 7 with a 1600 Xflow. You might have to buy the whole transmission to get the bushing. Also check Burton Power in the UK. Russ

    Appreciate the pointer. Spoke with Ken at Dave Bean Engineering and he has the semi-spherical ball I need as well as a suitable shift-boot.

    One more thing I’m after - more secure latches for the rear of the bonnet. Any pointers are appreciated.

    Europa Spares in the UK has a good reproduction latch as well as an assortment of alternatives.

    If the latch is loose, you can elongate the upper bolt holes, raise the upper clip slightly and the flange will still cover the bolt holes.
    This will work on the upper part of the latch where the holes are in the bonnet, not so for the lower part which usually goes into the frame bar.

    If you want to add a strip of insulation, "Scott" makes some really thick (1"x.065") insulation tape.

    Good luck and measure carefully!

    Dzus fastener TL 110 Series overcentre latch, stainless with secondary lock. These are fitted to my Birkin and work very well. You need to order the latch and striker when ordering unless it comes as a kit.

    Check out Protex. They make a number of different styles and their site includes dimensional drawings which should come in handy.
