 Ian is currently in the middle of stripping the gearbox from a Rolls-Royce 20 HP.  The car's owner had noticed a slight stickiness in disengaging with the change lever.  Ian tested the car on arrival and agreed that changing out of first and also out of second when under high load situations is unacceptably ‘jerky’ when compared with the change between third and top and warrants further investigation.  It could well be a mis-alignment due to bearing and bush wear but will only become apparent upon stripping down the gearbox. 

Parts are thoroughly degreased prior to inspection
