Advice needed please. I am fitting a later 5 speed box and complete handbrake/gearchange support to a 20vt and would like to know if the sliding runner over the gearstick can be dispensed with and the gearstick shortened, thanks in advance for your imput.

The black tube can be shortened to keep the reverse lock action, needs a section removed from the centre and then bond it back together, this would be my route to ensure you don't accidentally catch reverse.

You can take a section out of the early gear stick, be careful of the reverse lock cable plastic clip because if you break that while you're shortening the cable it never works properly after that.
