Hi Steve,  Many thanks for your work on our TOC141 Friday gone.  Your efforts have certainly paid off, it is a dream to drive now and I am very glad I went ahead with the upgrades.  You said there was little play in various components and I nearly said to just adjust it up,  that would have been a mistake because the resulting positive action of gear selection would have been lost.

So, once again, thank you.
Ace job and I am sure it is better now than when it was new!

What a superb job. The gearbox is an absolute dream now instead of the nightmare it previously was. 

The drive home was a joy. No longer will I dread the thought of trying to find first gear. Thank you so much - worth every penny!

David W, 2017 Thanks Steve for fixing the components on my motorhome today.
An unbelievable difference that has made it so much better now a sterling job I'm very happy.
Thanks again.
Paul and Kate,

Hi Steve
Just to let you know that I made it home ok. The gearbox is awesome. Thank you so much for everything. 
Kindest Regards  

Anthony D, 2017 Hi Steve,
Just a quick one to let you know that your magic has cured all the old girls woes.
It was a delight to be able to find a gear properly, rather than stirring porridge and hoping.
Thanks again.

Hi Steve, just a quick mail to thank you and your team for a first class service, the recon parts and new selector rods are on the van and it's going in each gear like a good one ! No adjustment was needed on the rods which is even better !! Thanks again.  

Brian Strong (Peugeot dealer,  Ireland) , 2016 Hi Stephen,
My name is Brian and I'm a storesperson in a Peugeot dealership in Ireland. I just want to say that I find your advice page excellent. It has proven an invaluable resource for me when dealing with customers enquiries. There's so little information available from Peugeot on this model and I used to dread when someone would call me about a J5/Talbot Express, but not anymore!
Les W, 2015 Hi Steve,
Many thanks' for collar great job works wonders, have said so on the forum.


Richard and Hazel G (note by jktowers: ....comment below shows that the side mountings can have a noticeable effect too, even on a very good (updated) linkage)

Belated thanks for the engine-mounts, which arrived promptly. I have just had them fitted.
All I can say is "Wow!".  As well as curing the side-slope problem, I can now appreciate the upgraded linkage properly for the first time.
It's like driving a new van, but surely not a Talbot Express!

I've now completed over 1000 miles in the motorhome since you overhauled the gear linkage system and what a difference it's made to the driving experience. Thank you for a job well done! 

Ann and Ray, 2016

hi thanks for the very prompt turn around.
The linkage and collar received today and refitted can feel the difference straight away.  Will recommend you.
Thanks again

Colin P, 2016

Gearbox collar,gearbox relay and new gear linkages.
OMG , What a difference ,I have driven newer cars with more play in the gear change ! 
Cannot thank you enough.
Bloody brilliant. 

John B, 2016

Hi Steve, It's been around a month since you upgraded the gearbox on my Ducato, but I would like to thank you again for the work you carried out so efficiently. 
The difference in driving my motor home is incredible, I am so impressed with how slick it is, compared to before, again thank you.

John F, 2014

Dear Steve,
Received my modified items this morning as promised.
Congratulations on your level of service and communication which is second to none.

Malcolm M, 2014

I have fitted your modified gear linkage parts, and would like to say as a retired fitter and turner that I was very impressed with the quality of the exchanged parts and the amount of work you have put into them. 

David B, 2013 just a quick message to say thank you for the quick and efficient service on my recent order.   Its nice to know that old-fashioned service is not dead. 

Paul M, 2013

Arrived this morning--fitted perfectly and a major improvement on gear selection.
hanks for a great service 

Ben H, 2013 Just confirming that the modifications to the gear linkages are fantastic
Once again thank you for the work you have carried out  
Rob and Jennifer,

Hi Steve, Would just like to say what a great job you've made of the gear linkage.
I can't believe the difference, it's like a new van, ... gear shifts are a lot closer together (thank goodness)!!

I will have no hesitation in recommending you to other Classic Camper Club members. I will be mentioning you on the letters page anyway..

Geordie C, 2012

Thanks Steve,  gearbox brilliant ...  thanking , you are the best in the business,
I was dubious about coming so far but was well worth it thanks

Mary (paintman1), 2012

Ruairidh (Dunford1), 2012

Hi Steve, 
... Thank you for your help and quick service, I only wish all traders I dealt with were the same.
Very, very grateful indeed. 

Rich.B  2011

Just to let you know the bushes you made came, ....  your bushes were perfect, its working better than it ever did.
Thank you for your help and prompt service if only, if only, others were like it....

Leslie L, 2911

Just to say" thank you" for the time and care you took.
It feels a different vehicle with the new slick gear changes.  

David W, 2011

We've just got back and I thought I'd e-mail straight away with the thumbs up!  The gear change is much better now.  The initial stiffness Sue mentioned wore off on the way home - I guess everything bedded in, and the gear selection is much more precise now.  So hopefully no more complaints from my drivers from now on!!

 Thank you very much for fixing the linkage etc, I'm very grateful. 

Sonia P, 2011
