The Honda ones have a different size of ball to the Rover ones - you need to get one that includes the socket so that the size of ball doesn't matter.

Hi Drew,
Think it was me, I bought one for a civic from the age / model that would appear to be the closest to the gear that fits the zs180. They come with a 35mm ball that needs turning down to 32mm so if you got access to lathe with a sperical cutter then ur sorted.

Cheers
Paul

Maybe easier to get a standard Honda socket to put the quickshift lever in, I think the mountings are the same.

surely easier to mod your own lever, just insert about 1cm into the rod *below* the ball, pin it and weld it. We used to do this on the Maestro & Montego Turbos, identical design. I think I still have a modded Monty one in stock...

I did a few but have feeling it was more than 1cm - more like 3cm iirc. Felt really nice though!
