Did someone ask about a gearshift gate recently?

I took measurements of an MT75 gearshift movement at the level of the tunnel top panel
and have since lost/misplaced them. From memory they were all about 10mm throws.
That is midpoint (3rd&4th) to left (1&2), and then to right (5&R) about 10mm
Forward and back in each slot the same 10mm or was it 15mm?

Bearing in mind the thickness (Dim?) of the shift shaft at this level I planned to mill a 6 slotted plate from Al
If some one can measure these MT75 and Type 9 throws and put them up here I may get around to milling a couple.
I am currently 12.000 miles away from a gearbox so can't measure, but I am near a milling machine in this garage.

think the post was on another site, but looks an interesting project.

my only thought would be the gearbox movement, unless fitted to the box itself, which may be impractical.

I think another member here will confirm that reducing gearbox movement using rigid mounts is not a good idea.
