  1. Hello Steve, given your posting date, you'll be fixed and long gone by now but this might help others searching. I had the problem you describe and fixed it this morning. Turns out, in my case at least, the gear change mechanism just needed lubricating. Have posted a clip on YouTube. Richard
  2. Hello, Take a listen here - Sure, you can hear the engine running, but what's the cause of the additional rattle? I'm wondering if I have a hydraulic valve tappet that's failing? Will post again once diagnosed and repaired as it may help others. Thanks Richard
