Aussie 4 speed shifter

Hi gents.

Short of using an angle grinder, how do I separate the 2 halves of an aussie 4 speed shifter with the vibration damper.
I want to make one good shifter out of 2 half good shifters -if you know what I mean.
So I want to be able reassemble the end result.

Are spare vibration dampers available anywhere.
All I have managed so far is to spread the jaws of vice grips.

cheers Jim

Hi Jim . I did this on a UC shifter years ago to shorten it . I clamped the top half in a vice , then with lost of small blows hitting the inner metal sleeve in the dampening bush with a centre punch (tapping all around evenly). It was only a press fit where the shaft fit into the dampener. It was mega tight , but when it released its grip it came out pretty easy.

Hope that helps a little .

watched a bloke try to bend bucket seat dampened shifter to fit a bench seat with an oxy once...the look on his face when the rubber melted and the top half fell over was classic...

thanks bernie.

That worked well.
The damper bush survived in reasonable shape.
To reassemble the shifter I will probably make up a press using some channel iron and 2 bits of threaded rod.

Glad you got it seperated mate . We all know little jobs like this can really turn into bl#$dy nightmares . Your threaded rod idea sounds good too.
