Cheers, mike
I only have one (bad) pic to hand, but here it is:

Absolutely no welding required for it, just some drilling and M6 bolts.

The part in question, looks like this:

It's quite easy to "liberate" from a scrap MG, just undo the two bolts, and then undo the steering column bracket. Go into "beast mode", give the column a good tug and it'll come off soon enough.

Then if you cut off the collar (blue in the picture), the two parts will separate and you're left with a UJ on a hollow shaft (which I cut the shaft in half lengthways and then bolted to my selector shaft) and a UJ on a rod, which could be welded on as per MG John's method.

Anyone that have measured the inner diameter of the gear linkage bar from Rovers such as the 620ti and 600 Diesel? The outer diameter is about 22mm, but would really like to know the inner diameter. If anyone have done the mod with a welded stub on top of the bar, there should be easy access to measure the ID of the open hole.
