Hello forum members,

I need your help as my newly acquired Morris ISIS gear shift has broken down. It has a column shift. While driving on B roads, i believe one of the linkages has fallen off. I was lucky this happened when i was on first gear and was not too far from home. Had to carefully drive it back home in first gear.

I have attached a few pics of the linkages and a pic of the gear change components from workshop manual.

The two ball joints circled in red is now not linked by a linkage rod (red arrow). This controls the "rod shifter lower".

I have circled another ball joint and the linkage in green which looks ok. This controls the "rod shifter upper".


Any help on how to source the linkages will help? Has anyone had this problem?

many thanks
sandeep

That is very unlucky to have both ball joint ends pop off.
Sometimes a ball joint can pop off if there is wear on the ball and the spring clip thing is not strong enough. This has happened on my Morris Cowley - one ball joint came off and the rod was left dangling on the other ball joint.

Have you had a close look at the road & driveway to see if the rod is still there?

Your Isis is a series I and the linkages are quite different to my series II, so I can't measure mine for you (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)

Howard Dent in the UK has great experience with Morris Isis and he might be able to help you. Hopefully he might be reading this forum soon!

If Howard or someone else can't help you out with original bits all is not lost as there are various bits & pieces available to make up a new linkage. It may require a new threaded rod making up.

FOR EXAMPLE

As Webmonster suggests, I would try and search the road you were on when this happened. It could take a while. Between discovering it and the last gear-change could be quite some distance. You might be lucky, worth a try.
As said Howard is the man, but he hasn't been on here for quite some while. If you p.m me, I've got his phone number.
