If you grab the part of the selector that goes into the gearbox and pull and push it back and forth, you'll feel it going in and out of 2 gears (3rd and 4th I think). When you feel it come out of one, just leave it there.
theres an orange plastic plug in the front of the selector turret (bulkhead side) ontop of the gearbox. pull that out, dont loose it, then you insert the butt of a 4.5mm drill into the hole, wiggle the linkage left and right until the drill slides onto the fork within the selector and locks it. then go into the car, take up the gear stick gaitor, move the stick into the neutral position, but that push it all the way to the left (passenger side) There should be an arrow on the lower gear stick and an arrow on teh gear stick surround, line these up. then you nip up the gear linkage pinch bolt in the engine bay.
have you always been a sarcastic sh.t ste? oh sorry, yes!
thats 2 consecutive threads i've read now when you've questioned someones research as if to belittle them - whats your point? this is a help forum where people come for help not to be told they're a monkey for not knowing.

any lack of research gen?
the first statement i have no problem with. its your 2nd statement. how it is worded for someone who is new to the site and reading would think that they would get critisized for not knowing everything. its all in the wording.
you've done it in a few others posts too.
we all know that you are one of if not the best on nova conversions on this site but there's no need to be a git about it to people who aren't.
There is a notch on the left hand side of the transmission tunnel that you line the gearstick up with.
The drillbit worked on my 4-speed Nova. Also on the F13/5 speed Astra 1.4 with no trouble at all. I would've thought they would all be the same wouldn't they?
