no.... Sad from one disaster to another lol. The one I got from Mega Bug was the same as the one from Heritage, despite me sending them a picture and measurements! Anwyay - Steve managed to get the old end out of the coupling, so I welded it back on, refitted it and somehow it still doesn't feel like I've got all the gears. It's hard to tell cos she's not on the floor, so I'm not certain where neutral is.... getting fed up of this car Rolling Eyes

Good work there Steve. Me and William popped round earlier but there didn't seem to be much movement so we didn't come in.
