Got the little beast jacked up enough to get under and dismantled the linkage a bit and removed the swivel bracket thing and it is well worn as are some of the bushes and securing pins. Quick blast round Ebay found a UK supplier for the bracket and bushes so will be here next week. I will probably take all the linkage off and clean it up and a lick of paint before it all goes back on. We can then have a few laps of the car park!!!

If I remember correctly  the bushes in the linkage under the Y10 were a real pain and very hard to push back into place.
And make sure the boots are in good condition or replaced.

I'll second that on the rod end bushes. I drifted one out from my spare linkage using a socket as a drift and it got thoroughly mashed. It struck me then that it would be a challenge to fit a new one. Presumably boiling water, lubricant and a good heavy vice are the way to go.

Can't remember how I did do it now, but I think a pair of large molegrips were involved!

Parcel came today with new lever thingy good service and the price was about the same as sourcing from Italy but arrived a lot quicker from Ricambo International Ltd. Just waiting for the bushes to arrive now.
