    Hi Guys,

    I have a problem with my knob, its keep coming off in my hand. Ive tried banging it back on and it'll stay for a while then it'll pop off again. Anyone know how to secure my knob down?

    Cheers

    exactly , get a 1" square piece of cloth , like an old bed sheet ,
    place on top of splines and then bang the gearknob back on

    but dont forget to put the reverse spring back on first
