    Everything fitted as planned and works a treat. The holes for the gearbox blank end of the base plate were way off for what was on my series landy. Would happily recommend it though. Posted a fitting video on YouTube.

    So far so good! What an improvement in driving. Shipping was impressive. I ordered on a Monday morning and received my kit in the U.S.A. the next day. I had to drill new holes for the inspection cover. The holes were a 1/2″ too low, the only reason I did not give five stars, but otherwise the kit seems well built. I definitely will recommend this kit.

    Really impressed with this kit.
    It all went together fairly easily but definitely take the time to watch a youtube video on it because you could easily not install in correctly and there are a couple of tips on there that made my life a lot easier.
    It feels incredible! My gear shift wasn’t the worst I’ve felt anyway but now it feels really precise, goes where I want it to and rests where I need it to.

    At first I didn’t have to make any adjustments to the transmission tunnel but we are doing a complete rebuild so the seat box was out. When we came to refit the transmission tunnel with the seat box in we found that you need to cut out a very small section (about 1.5cm) to make the hole bigger closer to the seat box. It was an incredibly easy job with a jigsaw and metal blade but has made such a huge difference to the gear shifts.

    Still setting in the box. Very well machined parts and I like the idea of having a detent center unlike the original floppy shifter.

    Ordered Sunday arrived Tuesday,
    Has transformed the gear change from a pudding stirrer to a much tighter action.

  12. Dermot O. (verified owner)

    Fast delivery, beautifully made piece, works well.

  13. Andy H. (verified owner)

    Arrived promptly, look,s a well made quality kit (have not fitted part as yet) alas though no
    fitting instruction,s were provided with this series “slick shift” kit. No doubt “you tube” or other on line media will provide this.

    Looks to be the ducks nuts,put away for my restoration that’s just commenced.

    I ordered a slickshift for my Series 3 Land Rover. At the same time my Dutch spare part dealer ordered also for me. At the same day i received my money back. Top service!

    Great service quick shipping great product much much better than using the normal Land Rover gear shift leaver so the Slickshift is the best ever.

  19. Dean White (verified owner)

    Just fitted my slickshift to my 1980 series 3 88, fantastic. One little adaptation I made was to create a rubber seal from a bathmat that fitted over the transmission tunnel and under the new gear lever gaiter, simple but sealed perfectly against the slickshift. Any chance you guys might include this in future products I’m sure it would be appreciated

  20. barry colman (verified owner)

    Only just fitted, very simple, basic tools, spring is easy, I used 2 short lengths of 1/4″ tube to locate in position. Haven,t taken for a decent drive yet but the gear stick is very positive with no “stirring” movement, some purists say you need a lazy sort of gear change to allow the synchro to work properly, but using a slower change similar to double de clutch will sort that out, but I haven,t had a problem, its not a race car after all, to sum up a great modfication

  21. Angel Mejia (store manager)

    I just wanted to take a minute to thank you so much for your wonderful product.You made my life easy driving with my new slickshift what a difference has made. It was very easy to install straight forward,I will order some other part from you for my series gearbox . I can see the quality on your product it said it all. thanks again

  22. Mick (verified owner)

    Fitted slick shift to my 1966 109 and what a difference…… no more guessing what gear you want and easy to fit piece of kit .
    Thanks Shab for the advice….. top bloke

  23. Lee Chapman (verified owner)

    Fitted the series slickshift to my Lt 76 gearbox and all I can say is wow what a difference it has made to the gear change so easy to now find 1st which was allways challenging, all the gears are now smooth and closer together.

    The kit is Easy to fit and adjust.

    Really well made piece of kit the best modification I have made to my 1966 series 2a made driving it a pleasure.

    Worth every penny.

    Thanks Lee

    Transformed the driving experiance of a series land rover
    great job

  25. Richard Miller (verified owner)

    Anyone who’s driven an old series knows that changing gear can be, how can I say? ‘challenging’. I suspect my 1969 2A’s gearbox has had a very hard life. I dare not inspect it! However, driving has now become a lot easier now that I’ve fitted the series Slickshift. I’ve set it up so that first is selected just pushing up from the centre position which has always been the hardest gear to find, making driving more of a pleasure than a chore!! Cheers Shabs for another winning bit of kit!

  26. Tim Jowitt

    Amazing bit of kit, so easy to assemble and install and it totally changes the way the you shift gear.

  27. Kieran Bedford

    Another great bit of kit from Shabs. I already have one of the Slickshifts on my Defender and was really impressed with the quality. Having bought numerous parts off Shabs over the pasts 12 months during the rebuild of my series 3 lightweight I decided that the series slickshift was likely to be a good bit of kit.

    I am not disappointed by the results at all. Gear changes are more precise and the distance between gears is much less. To caveat I don’t yet have the vehicle back on the road but the results are great just on the bench.

    I have done a write up at the following link for more info:

  29. Ian Verdon

    This best purchase for my series 3 all year. It made it drive-able for the other half, and made journeys a lot more pleasant. Fitment was really easy, and the kit is good quality. Wouldn’t hesitate to purchase one again for another box.
